I'm always happy to receive a cyber-hug!
When I was walking regularly a few years ago, I was living quite close to the Sydney CBD and used to walk around parts of Sydney Harbour foreshore which was a very steady, easy way of walking; usually it was 3kms, 4 days per week.
I moved away from the city 12 months ago and, for now, am living on the edge of a National Park which has some very nice and easy walking trails.
Yes, Tess is a big, beautiful girl who likes to take charge of the leash, hence the reason I will need to attain some level of fitness before she joins me on my walks.
You're really doing a great job with the walking "club", Shelley - good on you! Very inspirational!
Hello Ladyhawke..........Thankyou for giving me a hug, I do like them, as they help bring a connecting feeling within me or something. Here is one back to you.
Yes I lived in Sydney too for about 2 years, in Concord. I think I have walked around the foreshore as well. The monorail, was in the area somewhere where I walked. And a large shopping centre. Is that the same place?
Walking on trails in a national park, would be very different to the foreshore. Different smells, less people in business clothing, definitely different sounds and more nature and such.
I am glad you feel inspired, as I do as well by reading about everyone else's walks. I also feel accountable, well....I think that is the feeling. As one can use this thread to sort of report/share about there walk/ run or other forms of exercise. Thus for me, helping me became more disciplined in this area of my life.
Anyway I hope you continue to feel encouraged or inspired to take care of your wellbeing by walking or exercising.
Enjoy your walk on Monday now. And I hope you get fit real soon, so your big beautiful dog Tess can go along too.
