walking

Workout

up and down, a hill that is...

so i just ran up and down a hill by my house because i just got home from a late gig and needed to move my body. it was kind of fun and a nice challenge. 27 minutes of huffin' and puffin'. i also ran around the block. I'm trying to incorporate a little more jogging in my walks because walking is getting to be too easy for me now.

Movement Poetry

Why Walk?

A poetic meditation on the why of walking from the mnmlist (via Conditioning Research). Kinda lovely.

the joy of walking

Today I set out from my house and walked. And walked.

I didn’t have a specific destination in mind, but wanted to walk a bit before finding a quiet place to write. So I walked, out of the town where I live and along the tropical, white-sand coastline, to the next town over.

As others drove cocooned in their cars, I walked, and emitted nothing but my breath.

As others spent their lunch hour pounding down fat-laden burgers and greasy fries or some other cheesy fried piled-high dish, I walked, and burned calories.

As others rushed and stressed, I walked, and took my time.

As others sat at their computers, I walked, and got my blood flowing.

As others held power business meetings and made deals, I walked, and had time to think.

As others were productive and got tasks done, I walked and got nothing done, and cleared my head.

guilt ridden walk

i walked every where today. i ran 8.1miles, but i had turned around during yesterday's run so that 8.1 was supposed to be 11miles. i felt guilty all day, for turning around in rain yesterday, like i was made of sugar. so i set out to do all my errands by foot. nothing new, just something wet in the humid temps that languished over us today. so i walked, for an hour and 45 minutes...

Doo run run run the doo run run/Walk

Just did a 30 minute run/walk around the neighbourhood. I'm at a wierd point on my fitness journey. It seems like walking is too easy, but running non-stop is a bit too much. So I'm walking hills and adding a bit of jogging to give me a bit of a challenge.

What a glorious night!

Yet another exciting walk

Actually it was just another plain old walk to work, except cooler and less humid.  That aside, I hope we keep the minute counter forever.  As an obsessive numbers person, I love and adore seeing that number go up. It's better than the scale.

YES.

ok, so when i first signed up for the MMM i could run, without stopping, about 3/4 of a mile. yesterday, i ran 3.5 miles, and it felt GOOD.  my laptop died right before the MMM started, so i haven't been posting or keeping track of my minutes, but i HAVE been checking up on how the rest of you amazing people are doing and finding tons of inspiration and entertainment here.

And home again... and off again

Another 40 minutes of walking, divided in two while I waited for my husband to finish innoculating agar plates with algae.  Just before I left work, I had to direct a large contingent of puppeteers to their proper set-up place for an assembly tomorrow.  We have very different jobs.
