I keep thinking that just blogging when I walk is pretty boring. (To you the readers, not me.) But here I go again with another walking update.
Wednesday was a beautiful late winter day! It was sunny, temps were in the 50s and Deb and I walked for about 3 miles along the river. We didn't walk too hard, but we were using good racewalking form. Because of other commitments, it has been very difficult to get out walking enough. In fact, it may have been two months since I walked with Deb. Walking with a good friend just makes my day and since we had not seen each other in a while we had PLENTY to talk about!
I didn't get out to "walk" again until today. (I wasn't able to meet with the Buckeye Striders yesterday. Darn!) Weekends get busy and I had errands to run as well as the need to walk. So I reverted to my old habit of walking to the library. Haven't done it in a while and it felt good! I dropped off a bunch of books and picked up some new ones. I tried to hurry, so I have no idea if the new books will even be any good. The only bad part was the wind had picked up and it was in my face for most of the way home. I did bring my gator just in case, and I definitely needed it. It was sunny and much warmer on my way there.
I can't believe I have to keep reminding myself of this. I ALWAYS feel better--mentally and physically--when I'm walking regularly. I don't know what more I can say!
I gave up Diet Coke for Lent. I can't believe I did it again considering how hard it was last year! I'm not sure if it is my addiction to the caffeine that is the problem, or just the taste of DC. Other beverages are just not cutting it! The good news is, since I do drink so much of it, and other pops don't do much for me, I should save a ton of money by drinking more water. (I know, I know. I should do it anyway.)
