The other night, Husband told me about Michael Moore's walking streak: 30 minutes every day for something like 42 weeks now. (His motivation: https://www.facebook.com/mmflint/posts/10151165307981857). I typically walk three or four times a week anyway, so why not "step it up?" So I joined the New Year's resolvers and started Walking With Mike on January 1. I aim to keep a weekly log to help pull me along (meant more for me than for you, dear reader, but you are certainly welcome to read along--or better yet, walk along too).
Tues, Jan 1: The notable thing about today's walk: It's my first official Walk With Mike on the first official day of the first month of a new year. Tom and the dogs joined me around the neighborhood loop.
Wed, Jan 2: Tom and the dogs joined me again for the neighborhood loop. I think the temp was around 10 degrees, but we still heard chickadees. Started out quite chilly, yet I had unwrapped my scarf and unzipped my neck by time we finished.
Thurs, Jan 3: Today's walk was a Nordic ski. Only 5 degrees out, but I stayed pretty warm. I'm not a very skilled xc skier, but I do like being out on the trails in the woods by myself.
Fri, Jan 4: Walked with Tom and dogs at mud pond. Windy, so the trees were noisy--creaking, squeaking, whistling, and dropping rather largish branches. Running through the woods is surely the happy place of both dogs.
Sat, Jan 5: Walked with Tom and dogs at Lake Iroquois trails. I wish I would've worn snowshoes.
Sun, Jan 6: Another ski day. Downhill, with the whole family.
Mon, Jan 7: Afternoon walk around neighborhood with friend and neighbor Ivy (and dogs). Time goes by quickly with Ivy, as she is a good conversationalist.
