How Much Is Enough?

Walking is wonderful

Taken at 6AM on yesterday’s walk. The iPhone 11 has an incredible camera.

Walking is wonderful.

Now that Cheryl and i are together at home after a busy Summer, walking is a joy.

After today’s walk, there’s still the four-mile roundtrip walk to the gym, an hour at the gym, and a 15-mile roundtrip bicycle trip to do an errand and visit Walt Disney World.

Whistle ​while you work

Downtown Orlando
Downtown Orlando yesterday.
eat more ice cream sign
What the sign really says is, “We want to increase our revenue and the only way to do that is if you buy more stuff, more often.”

Whistle while you work.

The obvious opportunity of city life is that most everything is within walking distance.

We have walked many miles in the past 48 hours.

More miles than we walk at home.

At home, from a time-required perspective, things are close for biking or walking.

To save time, we bike rather than walk to the grocery, doctor, restaurant, and other assorted services. Biking is simply much faster.

PS. From home, i personally walk 4 miles roundtrip to the gym every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday because i’m giving my running legs a multi-year break. The gym’s shortest route is 1.5 miles, so i cut through a few subdivisions to add an extra mile roundtrip. The longer route also keeps me away from the “Disney Parkway” heavy traffic noise.

Walking may be healing my feet

Biking Going to the Sun Road
Biking Going to the Sun Road June 2018…more on this in future posts.

 

Walking may be healing my feet.

Looking forward to this morning’s four-mile roundtrip walk to the gym.

Too early to know for sure, but it feels like abandoning the bicycle and walking 9-12 miles (just to & from the gym) a week is doing something important for my feet.

Take the shoe-leather express

Louisville riverfront
Passed two news vehicles on the four-mile walk to work yesterday.

 

Louisville sunrise
Room service delivery arrived later yesterday, so the sun was higher than the day before when i reached this spot.

 

Take the shoe-leather express.

Also known as walking.

On top of consecutive days of long walking commutes, work involved six-plus hours of classroom standing.

It was quietly exhilarating to push myself to this rare extreme.

And the day-dream of spending a summer doing daily hikes through Glacier National Park was alive and well.

Survey says…

Louisville river front carnival
The morning temperature hovered near 32 degrees.

Nearly four miles into yesterday morning’s walking-commute to work.

Looking back where i had been last night.

Twelve hours later, same Ferris wheel.

 

flowering tree
It snowed 36 hours ago, yet all the trees are bursting with Spring anticipation.

 

  1. i’ve published 17,000+ blog posts.
  2. Yesterday i walked eight miles round trip to work.
  3. i drive an antique car as my primary mode of transportation.

 

Number three is untrue. My 1990 car won’t be an antique until 2020.
