Walking is perhaps one of my favorite things to do as I love being outside and feeling the sun on my skin!
Back in the day, when I was younger, I used to love running. But when I wasn’t running, that would mean I was injured with painful shin splints or patellar tendonitis.
Finally after spending so much money on therapy, orthotics, new shoes, anything and everything I could find the heal my pain, I had the realization that I was insane.
What is that quote? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.
So now I walk…and I have 2 yellow labs that love it when I do.
Walking is great for bone density, especially if you walk barefoot…which I don’t..unless at the beach. Great for an endorphin kick, back pain, and vitamin D absorption (the happy vitamin).
Check your local YMCA or HR departments and see if you cannot find a walking group to join. Some corporations have groups that walk at lunch. That is a great way to stretch your legs after sitting at your desk all day!
Find a safe spot or a partner, and go out for a daily walk!
What is your walking routine?
