Starting the day with a spirited walk
I would love to suggest that this morning's walk was mine but it wasn't -- though I benefited.

Don't swing your kettlebells without stretching your body
If you're going to engage in 90-seconds of vigorous kettlebell swings every hour, all day long, every day, even with only a single 12kg kettlebell, then a stretching regimen is essential.

Sadly, this was surely a spirited walk instead of a run, but I was just getting my body prepared.

I decided today to take as long a walk as possible
I decided today to take as long a walk as possible. Sadly, today isn't as marvelous and glorious a day as it was yesterday—though who knows, I haven't spend any time outdoors in days as I am in self-quarantine.

Give yourself permission to call an Uber of Lyft if you've overdone your outdoor adventure
I gave myself permission to call an Uber if I ever end up completely shagged out during one of my interminable death marches or slow jogs a long time ago. How amazing that I can click a button on my phone and be saved! In the image below, the light blue is my walking and the dark blue is the Ubering.

I can't believe I need recovery time between super-long walk days
I understand that one needs recovery time between long runs or between heavy workouts, but who thought that I would need recovery days between long walks.

I've replaced treadmill walking with daily humping schlepping rucking with all my weight and all my gear
People poo-poo walking as exercise, teasing all of us with our pedometers and Fitbits and our obsession with steps. New Yorkers, San Franciscans, and the French, mostly keep themselves fit for life by walking outside and negotiating hills and stairs on a daily basis. And they're skinny.

Walking: Thu, 1 Aug 2019 19:47:29: A Walk to Whole Paycheck for a Prepared Food Dinner
I ventured from my apartment at 7:50 pm and it was cool and overcast and still daytime. So I walked and walked. I basically walked until I hit my 12,000 steps, which was about another 2.71 miles in addition to the casual walking I did for the day; then, I hopped a city bus, 16H, and rode all the way home.

Walking: Wed, 31 Jul 2019 18:51:31: Called for Rain
I wussed out. It didn't even really rain. Well, it wasn't a run it started off as a run but turned into a walk and then turned into hiding from the big slow drops of rain and then I just stopped at Giant and did a little shopping and then rushed home.

Walking: Sat, 15 Jun 2019 21:17:59: cut it a mile short
Lovely. Cut it a mile short because a 16E bus driver for ART—Arlington Transit—took pity on me while I was wandering around the Pentagon and stopped in the middle of the road and let me on, God bless him. I was done but I would've done the rest. But I appreciated the generosity and kindness. I even had a metro card so it was all good!
