So for the past 4 weeks my exercise has been walking. Nope, I never aired up the tires on the bike. Each day I walked my minimum, which is 30 minutes, and that was it. I think I had 2 or 3 days that I walked a little longer. No yoga, no stretching, no weights, no schedule, no demand, just walking.
SCENES FROM MY RECENT WALKS
Horses on the hill! More therapy! (MS)
LA Bayou therapy!
Back in MS - new pavement - just in time to welcome me back to running. Nice and cushiony!
Thoughts from 4 weeks of walking
1st 3 weeks - "I can't wait to run again"
4th week - "I may be too lazy to run again"
This week is another year of my exercising streak. 9 years ago, I said I would exercise for 30 minutes each day. (2 other ladies committed too, I will not mention any names, but let me just say, this has been a solo streak) (also in full disclosure - I did have 1 day when I only went for 20 minutes - also some days would barely qualify as exercise - so I say 9 years of 30 minutes of movement. When I'm sick- it's down to a stroll)
I am very thankful for my health, desire, and hard-head to "get out the door" each day. Also, I'm thankful for family and friends who occasionally go with me to complete the daily task. (my sister has been with me at 11:30pm to get it in just in time, and she has also been at the unGodly hour of 3:30 am. In fact, in the 9 years, I may have covered every hour on the clock, just to "get it done" Hubby and Scarlett (our dog) have been with me many days - I love our walking time together)
One of my favorite pics of Scarlett. (that's some photographer to get her sticking her tongue out, right?)
So YES, I'm a streaker! I never told you that :)! I will keep it going until something comes up that keeps me from getting in my 30 minutes during a 24 hour period.
I like to say
"It Must Be Done!"
