But over the winter I have become especially lazy, the car was used for a quick jaunt to the store, the days were so cold that it was easier to just put the dog out back, rather than walk her, her walks became less frequent and by the end of the winter it was not at all.
I really wanted to get back into the walking routine,and with the better weather returning I decided that the time was now! I thought I'd gradually ease myself into it by taking angel on our usual walk, and to be honest with you it almost did me in. I didn't even make it half way! My feet were sore and legs and back ached. When I got home, I asked hubby what has happened to me, I use to walk that walk at least twice a day? He sympathized with me and said he's been feeling out of shape lately too. and that the next time I went out he'd come along with me to encourage me to finish the walk .
We started on April 27th, and a buddy makes all the difference.
We left our house walked all the way to old Brighton, and then continued to walked the boardwalk in Victoria Park, then back home again, I was sore, but not as sore as before,
Monday marked a week of walking everyday, and I feel so much better, only my feet ache and I think a new pair of trainers will fix that! I'm also thinking about getting a pedometer.
Hubby works swing shifts and he goes back to work tomorrow so the true test on how serious I am, will be then.
Here are a few shots from yesterday's walk
