Just Keep Walking Update

Benefits-of-Walking

Tomorrow is the big day.

We have walked Every. Single. Day. for 4 years and tomorrow is the start of year 5.

Here’s to Just Keep Walking because what else is there?

Today it was raining and we used the umbrellas but not bad just a spring rain.Things I’ve learned:

THINGS I’VE LEARNED ALONG THE WAY:

  •  Just put on your walking shoes first thing when you get up. I wear North Face hikers that have lasted over a year and I’m just now ready for a new pair. Invest in a good pair of shoes. Mine run @ $100.

  • Invest in rain gear. I use Frogg Toggs.

  • have an umbrella for when it’s just a light rain.

  • Intentional walking can be 1/2 mile or 5 miles. It’s about your intention that you are walking.

  • Be kind to yourself. Sometimes it’s a great walk other times it’s a PITA.

  • Find a safe reliable place to walk. If you’re lucky enough like we are to have a park with a walking trail great. But it can also be sidewalks or even a country road.

  • Use a program to track. I use Runtastic on my iPhone and I had a fit bit for 2 years till it died earlier this year. Fitbits are great for daily steps too.

  • Even when I’m traveling, I search out a walk to do. I usually wait till it’s light and of course, that it’s in a safe area.
