My body sure doesn't recover as well as it used to! I left the family & dog at home & walked around the local park last night. I went 2 miles in 27 minutes - just me & my iPod. Cruisin'!!! My booty & thighs are killing me today! Plus as soon as I got home I took Jack for a short walk thru the neighborhood, since I was haunted by that hopeful little Beagle face when he watched me put my shoes on - and then leave without him.
I'm pretty proud of myself. I had fixed dinner as soon as Randy got home, so we were done early. I had just sat down at the computer to play The Phantom of the Opera (a hidden object game - love them!!) and commented to myself that I really should take advantage of the nice evening & go for a walk. So I shut down the game & got changed. The game was going to be there when I got back!
I also went for a walk at work yesterday. A co-worker and I walked 4 times around the building, which is a decent size office building & 30 door loading dock. I think I'd call that a "chat walk" since it took 20 minutes. That was more to get away from the desk than to actually exercise.
I had a thought as I was walking last night. I need to put some cadences on my iPod. I have no desire to run ever again (unless chased by zombies) but it really did help keep a steady pace. I have a cassette tape of Navy cadences out in the garage, but nothing to play it on! I need newer media! Wonder if there's something on iTunes....?
