A walking buddy!

Monday, June 13, 2011

emoticonI am thrilled to death when a neighbor asked if I would be her walking buddy. Yeah!!!! whooo hoooo!!! I need to be accountable to another adult. Having my dog, Wilson to motivate me to walk doesn't work. I easily say 'no' not today to him..... so now Wilson and I have a walking buddy. We met my good friend Kathy at 8:00 this morning at the corner and walked for about an hour around our neighborhood. The goal is to work up to walking to a nearby lake and walk the path around it, about 6 miles total. Right now today we walked about 1 3/4 miles to begin with, and we are sorta slow. I'm just getting over a foot injury and it's the first time I've walked with Wilson since early this spring. In fact, I've gone without pain meds for about a week for the first time in a while. So hopefully I will feel ready to walk again tomorrow morning! I probably walked a little farther than I should have at one time... but I feel good so I didn't want to stop too soon. I'm looking forward to walking again tomorrow and look forward to the conversation and friendship. Now it's off to shopping and cleaning my house....

Have a wonderful day,
