Not a good day for National Walk day in Boise, but I Yam what I Yam.

  • Print

It's National Walk day.  It's a sponsored event by the American Heart Association.  I like to walk.  I used to speed walk, but since the broken legs, I can't get the momentum.  So now I stroll, not for excercise, but for meditation.  I remember hearing about a craze generations ago, called Walking the Tortoise or something like that.  It was done by the "cool" dudes who would saunter from store front to store front with no particular place to go.  I've enjoyed the thought of that and have been trying to train my mind to slow down.  It's my effort to support the "Slow movement".  On the speedier side of things I've gotten into treadmill dancing.  I don't go over 3 mph, but I get more upper body movement by pumping my arms sometimes in a boxing move, sometimes like a flying machine.  I've gotten good enough I can do the grapevine sideways on the belt.  I do get blisters, but my feet have never looked this badMargo
