My new walking habit hasn’t exactly gotten off to a running start. Since setting a goal on July 6 to go for a walk 75 times by the end of the year, I’ve gone for a walk exactly 3 times. I have been sick for 3 weekends out of this month, which put a damper on this habit.
Now that I’m feeling better, I’m feeling like my body really wants me to start working on this habit. I can only weightlift 3 or 4 times per week, because if I lift any more than that, I start getting into poor recovery, overtraining and fatigue. But I’m definitely feeling awfully slow and sedentary for some of the other days. Today, even though it was approximately 150 degrees outside and muggy, I took a detour on the way home from work and parked a a local woodsy trail. I walked for about 40 minutes on the trail before going to pick up my kiddo. Definitely worth the detour! I enjoyed it.
