Had a great 3 hour walkaround with the family on Saturday at an Antiques and Vintage Fair.
We all had a great workout - especially my wallet! :shock: :lol:

Walking is really good exercise. Not only is it a good physical workout but a great mental release as well.
I've been getting back into jogging recently. You do quickly forget how wonderful it makes you feel.
After an 40 minute jog around midnight with the cool music pumping from the ipod...the world seems a better place. :D

Yes, it is a great workout and I love it, so really it's a win/win :) It does clear the head when you can get out for a good walk in the fresh air. It's my thinking time.

I went for my walk today and managed to stretch it out to 40 mins :) Going for my weekly walk tomorrow with my friend around the lake which is usually 30 min.

Do you use CK phone app Karen?
Not saying you should tomorrow when you're walking with your gf, but if you're on your own, try one of those pedometer type apps (I use "runtastic") it shows you how many steps, distance, time, and calories burnt....it's great to see it change with every step and I keep egging myself on "I'll stop when I get to 2000 steps, then no no....at 2500 steps, nahhhhh.....3000" and so on!!! It's fun!!! :wink:

I did have CK on my phone, but took it off for some reason. I have been looking for one of those apps on my phone to measure how many calories burnt and how many steps etc!! I will search for runtastic. Is that on iphone?

Hmmm....not sure. I'll check.
I used the free (with ads :roll: ) for a while to see if it really worked, and it did so I purchased the registered version. The free version doesn't say how many calories you've burned but it tracks the distance, time and steps then all you need to do is put them into CK to calculate.
I'll do some investigating for you........

There's an online version that it uploads your progress to:

MyFitnessPal is pretty good, for calorie counting AND exercise tracking!!

ABSOLUTELY none!!! :lol: :lol:

I know you'll deliver Karen, and deep down, so do you!! You can "feel" it right??? I reckon most times, you just know if it'll be favourable. Your body talks to you (you just gotta listen to what it's sayin') :wink: :lol:

It is always good to try to outdo your last exercise effort. Pushing a little bit harder each time.
That is how I went from a meagre 10 minute stroll covering a short distance to a good hour jog covering many kilometres.
The only proviso is to always watch yourself carefully...push it but don't break it!
You can't exercise too well if you end up laying yourself out! :shock:

Very true Kim!!! You have to work it hard but not so hard that you injure yourself.

I know my limits, and I may cross the line from time to time but generally I won't push things too hard unless I'm provoked...then the battle is really on!!! 8) :wink:
