    i miss living in a city where you can just walk anywhere.
    tremendously. i could walk in the most inappropriate pair of shoes.

    i can't seem to walk as a form of exercise though. i just end up running.
    but if i remember, i'll slow down, and do a brisk walk.

    i'm gadget/toy oriented. nike plus may be the coolest thing ever
    when out running and walking.

    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    When I lived in the city, I used to walk for miles an end. On the weekends, I would wonder into the centre of the city and do a little shopping. The round trip used to take about 4 or 5 hours, so I guess I must have covered 10 or 12 miles, easily enough. I never even used to buy that much. It was just an excuse to get out of the house for awhile and see the world. Give the inferior a little stimulation. It was either that or sit around eating cheese cake.
    Don't make whine out of sour grapes.

    I used to walk 12 miles an evening (or day if it was cool outside and I wasn't working).

    The key is to be in a stimulating environment and to have good music.

    Of course, you want to be in a safe environment as well!

    Walking's awesome. I always walk.

    Only 2.2 miles today.

    I got home late because I went to see a movie and my left arm is painfully numb. I know I shouldn't be making excuses but that's mine.

    Are you also dizzy or have a headache? If you consistently have the symptoms you have been describing, you really need to see a doctor.

    Umm, a little? It's mostly the arm. I had a tetanus shot a few days ago.

    Okay, well I guess the shot might explain a painful arm.

    But if you always get dizzy or very tired when exercising (not pushing yourself) you could have low iron or some other condition. A doctor may help you to feel better by giving you supplements or something.

    I don't have low iron, it was checked a few days ago.

    The injection site doesn't hurt, just... the whole ulnar nerve thing.

    The only thing nicer than walking is walking with two trekking poles, or two hiking poles.

    Walking with trekking poles exercises the whole body, not just the legs. And trekking poles keep you steady on your feet.

    And there are two parts to regular exercise and that is the exercise and the recovery.

    Normally we focus on the exercise and neglect the recovery. However it is in the recovery period that we reap the physical benefits of the exercise.

    So I exercise one day and recover the next and so on day after day.

    And the recovery is also important psychologically because it allows us to approach our next day of exercise fresh and relaxed and ready to go.
