Nova Scotia Mike Posted July 27, 2022 Share Posted July 27, 2022 Hi, Inspired by someone in the Weight Loss thread saying they walk 30 miles a week (Dave I think) ... got me thinking about walking. I walk my dog but other than that I do not often purposefully go for a walk. In fact, when I've found myself in-between dogs I recall wanting to go for a walk but feeling odd about in having no dog/reason to go for a walk. That's just something odd in my head. Our bodies have evolved to be great long distance walking machines. When I've been stuck behind a desk for too long and I go for a walk I can absolutely feel my body getting back to a more natural state, my back cracks, my posture improves, etc. I'm not really sure how beneficial leisurely walking is. I'd guess there is some slight cardio benefit but calorie burning is minimal. I do find walking clears my head (especially so in the woods) and I sleep better on days that I'm able to get some walking in. There's some Japanese challenge that became an unofficail health thing to walk 10000 steps a day, can't hurt, right? Shorts/sunglasses, comfy shoes/sandals, iPod with good tunes, cannabis vape pen (optional), a dog/wife/kid and an hour and I'm good to go. All seasons. Morning, lunch break, evening ... all good. City, woods, beach ... all good. Do you walk? What is your walking routine, goal? Favourite walking footwear? In this thread, let's talk the walk.
