These Boots (Runners) Were Made For Walking..


Well, last week I began walking everyday and I feel tired yet much better than I had previously felt. Of course, when I worked on the weekend I did not walk, except for at work. Today I walked along the Werribee River. It has a little bit of flow to it at the moment, yet it is still, very sadly, so low. There is also green algae there atop the water. There are still some ducks hanging around and they seem happy enough...yes, they told me so ok! LOL.

My pedometre tallied 16651 steps for today's walk. This is a great achievement. The day was rather cool to begin with so I wore my coat and a scarf around my neck. By lunch time it was a really nice Autumn day. The picture above is of the Womens New Balance 806 Runners I bought on Ebay for $31.00..not bad eh? They are very very comfortable too.

Tomas is on camp right now, having a ball with his mates no doubt. Sarah said she misses him tonight. This is 0nly his second night away at camp. I can't wait to see what he got up to. I gave him a couple of those disposable cameras to take pictures of the fun times.

A neighbour told me that she gets bored when walking. I am not sure how? So much to see on any walk and certainly beats a treadmill.

Taking a little (or a long) walk each day is a great way to get away from everything and just get outside and check out the scenery.

Good for you! Walking is great exercise for both body and mind.

Andrew, I agree, we walk a different route each day. Yesterday we went through some streets I had never been before and got to look at all teh nice gardens. Then we went along the river and got to see lots of wild life..these things cannot be seen from indoors :) Today we walked 9kilomtres, yesterday we walked 10kilometres :)

Jay, I so agree, the scenery makes it all worth while.

Mom, I am cetainly sleeping better for it, and my reflexes are super fast :)

Hi Cazzie, thanks for stopping by. I don't know the answer to your question, but I'd suggest that you post it in the CoolRunning forums. If you haven't visited before, you'll find it a wealth of information - some of it useful even!

Walking is a great form of exercise, and lots of fun! Good for you :) I need to try to do something like that, I'm getting very stagnant.
