Truth be known ~ after purchase, it sat on the shelf for a couple of years.
And then I took his simple advice.
I hopped got out of the car (waiting in carpool line) and walked five minutes in one direction, turned around, and walked the five minutes back to the car.
Quickly I built up steam and stamina. However, it always takes a bit of mental discipline to get up and going.
Here's a short list of my favorite ordinary routes with links a one-time blog entry.
2) Heritage Park
3) Boling Park
4) Canton Loop
5) Canton Stretch
6) Canton Historic
7) Canton Bluffs
8) River Green
9) Prominence Point
Early on, I determined that I didnt want to train for competition (racewalking), but for health and pleasure.
Learning the local history and trying to keep in shape are motivators enough.
But I think I may work through this PBS series on walking to help me stay on task.
And remember J M Barrie's* sound advice ~
Make your feet your friend.
Where do you like to walk?
