I love walking!
« on: February 18, 2012, 11:18:28 PM »
A year ago today, I bought my pedometer. (It's a gadget you wear that counts your steps). I bought it to inspire myself to get some exercise. Boy howdy, it sure worked!  :shocked:

Over the past year it has counted 4,453,969 steps. An average of 12,202 steps per day.

In the past, I've also briefly alluded to plotting myself a virtual walk. From Lethbridge, where I live, to Yuma, my hometown. I made it to Yuma after 10 months worth of walking, but decided I needed to make another route to keep myself motivated for daily walking. So I plotted another route back to Lethbridge, via a different direction. It takes me through towns that have friends or family living in them, so they'd have some meaning for me. Here's the map.

I'm near Hatch, New Mexico!  ^.^ Anyone there got any chilies to share? Mmmm . . . chilies.

Anyway, I just thought I'd share my love of walking. Very good exercise. :gallop:

I'm very proud of you, SDS!  I wish it would rub off on me ... haha.  When you walk through TN, say hi.  :)

THAT is so cool!! What an awesome idea!! I love to walk myself. When Mattman and I moved to SC we found that for the first time since we married, we lived on a road that had next to no traffic. One that we felt %100 comfortable walking the dog on. We love nice days and talking our hound out for a jaunt! It's an awesome chance to just spend some time talking without home distractions. I can't wait for Spring so we start walking daily again!!

Thanks for the comments everyone! :grouphug: I walked yesterday for 8.5 miles. My toes are a wee bit sore today, but it was worth going further than ever before, and back. :D

I LOVE walking, but it is so hard to go for long walks here.  I also got a pedometer... just this last November (you know the Walking Trainer game for the DS?  Picked it up with it's 2 pedometers for $7.50).  I love it!  I love seeing how much I've walked... although it's depressing lately as I just can't get my butt outside to walk.  Whenever I'm in town, I just want to walk, but we live on a highway in the country, and it's a busy highway at that.  Sigh.  I'm always afraid of getting run over with how some people drive. 

I can't wait until spring/summer when I can take the kids into town and walk outside again.  To the park!  right now, we 'mall walk' whenever we get the chance.  :)
