Walking

I would like to lose another 10 pounds. Going back to Japan for a month would do it for me, but it's not going to happen anytime soon. I've decided the answer is more walking here. It's not as interesting, but I feel like I have to do it. On Thursday I walked 4 miles. Friday I sat on a bus most of the day, which was harder on my legs than walking. Yesterday I went to a film at a private school here and walked to the school, about three miles away. Today I walked to East Liberty to the Walgreens, another three mile round trip. I am feeling wiped out and my legs ache. That's how I felt most evenings in Japan. Maybe a month of this will do it for me.

The bus trip Friday was run by the Osher program at Carnegie Mellon University. We went to the Westmoreland Museum, lunch at the Pike Run Country Club, then the Museum of the Southern Alleghenies. It was a nice day, except for the bus, which was uncomfortable. I'm not big on bus trips; probably won't take another one for awhile.

  1. I’ve been thinking along the same lines lately. Need to get out and walk more, I think daily. Maybe it’ll happen. Winter has to be over soon, and along with it maybe those unwanted extra pounds will disappear too.

  2. You’re inspiring me – I’ve not been walking in about 6 weeks, and need to get back into it.
