Day 277: There are days when a walk has to do

For the second time in this project, I decided that a 45 min walk would have to count for my activity for the day.
After a hectic past couple of weeks, I needed a breakette. So a walk was what I needed.


Walking in my boots!

I went out at lunchtime, and ended up going for a full 45 mins (my whole lunchtime)

It was a nice sunny day and I had a story to listen to on my iPod πŸ˜€ Β Ideal conditions for walking really…Work were lucky I made it back at all…it was very tempting just to keep going and see how far I could go…

I didn’t do this by the way, I do need my job πŸ™‚

I ended up going Β 2.7km in 45 mins, not the fastest route march in the world but pretty and out in the fresh air, and a robin came to see me which always makes me smile!



There should be owls…and castles!

The other thing that made me smile was the name of a street I passed, Owlcastle close.

It brought to mund castles full of owls going about their owly business in grand and regal sorts of ways, with possibly King owls and Knight owls (hehe night owls!)

OK…I am easily amused shhh!

It was a nice walk, and although I had a hard time convincing myself of this come the evening, it does count as my daily activity.

I can tell you something else, from the perspective of the next day, after an early night in which I got over 8 hrs sleep, I am glad I had a rest, albeit an active one πŸ™‚

    As I’ve moved into year two, I have relaxed my rules to be less about daily “sweat” and more about daily movement. As long as I at least get a good walk in each day, I feel good. Good for you for listening to what your body needed yesterday.

      I felt terrible about it to be honest!

      I felt like I was cheating! But I said right at the very start that a walk could count as long as it was a deliberate walk!

      I felt better for it too! I am working on learning what I need and not just going crazy all the time! It is hard though, I must have asked my husband about 20 times…”are you sure I am not cheating”…I would have probably been less tactful than he was and just told me to shut up!
