I know I should do more walking. I need to walk to help control both my weight and my high cholesterol.
A couple of years ago we bought pedometers in hopes that they would help motivate us to get our daily exercise. And I must admit that I think I did fairly well – last year I averaged almost 5 miles per day and did pretty well with both my weight and my cholesterol.
But this year has been a different. I did pretty well until mid-Spring, but then because of discomfort from my hernia, I cut back on my walking. Of course I didn’t do much walking after my surgery, either. Then it was too hot to walk. I had all kinds of reasons not to walk, but I promised myself that I would start walking when it cooler.
Well, it got cooler yesterday and I thought I had better start walking. I took a path across the golf course that I had easily walked last year — I thought it would be an easy way to get back into the swing of things. But it didn’t take me long to notice that someone put more hills in the trail than there were last year. I think they also managed to stretch it out somehow!
Needless to say, I didn’t set any speed records yesterday, but I did get a start. I wonder how I’ll do today?
