Exercise is so much more fun OUTSIDE!!!

Sunday, November 30, 2014

Today was a lovely Colorado type day. Sunshine, a few clouds, a soft breeze and just all in all a lovely outside kinda day!

We traveled to get wood..cause yep the cold will return . so that was a nice journey.
Even doing chores is more fun when I can play with the critters and take time to pet my lil
donkey. My hens are like a litter of pups under my feet all the time sure that I have a treat for them. Their delight when they see the scrap bucket is like that of a child looking at a goodie basket..I swear they come flying and squawking like I was delivering ones favorite chocolate treat!

A walk thru the fields with the donkey was a delightful way to get in my steps and then some.

Hmm SP and my puter must be feuding tonite..pics dont' wanna come up..thas ok as I am ready to tuck me in ...been a delightful busy outside day..The best kind!!

there we go..indeed..talking about it won't get it done. I do think walking across or around a field..even though I do not walk as fast it is more difficult with ups, downs..gullys and such. The difference of the breeze, the odors, the silly gray donkey trotting at my side which makes me grin like an idiot! Yes walking outside is much better and I think a bit more challenging.

I do believe that one. I have found I can indeed push me just a bit more..then a bit more.
I often use marching songs that I learned to set a pace and it actually helps me to count aloud. Not sure what the mechanism is..but it makes me focus on what I am doing and keeps me motivated. I learned some pretty "interesting" songs while doing Civil War re-enactment.

It has been a while since I did a "fence walk" and I could tell . There is indeed a huge difference between pasture walking and the treadmill ..I am just so glad that today was an outside day. It is truly impossible to walk here on muddy days as the mud has a special quality that will suck the soles off of your shoes! So a day like today is to be celebrated.

Yep that about sums it up!! Now gonna shower and go tuck me in..

Tomorrow is gonna be another great day!! I just know it!!!! emoticon

    Yes, a walk in the elements is really different than a walk in a control environment. Mind you the treadmill can ensure you run at a steady pace. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    How lovely, and I agree walking outside is worth more than walking on a dreadmill any day.

    Have a great one

    Nice day! I once had a shoe sucked off while hiking. Love the motivational pics, but sometimes your legs DO give out.

    Sounds like you had an interesting walk. I walked for 3 hours straight, and also shopped for an additional hour. My legs are tired tonight, but it was beautiful out - tee shirt weather. We are supposed to get rain the next couple of days, but I hope to do some more walking. emoticon
