Working Out: The Power of Walking

I tend to be an all or nothing girl.

If I’m going to work out, I would rather run stairs than take a leisurely yoga class. You’ll find me going hard with my trainer for an hour instead of taking an extra hour to watch TV. A lot of the time, this is a great thing.

Yet recently, my life has been settling down. Things are calmer, and a more relaxed view of working out only makes sense. So I have started walking.

Luckily I have my girl Mandy to motivate me to get out there and walk everyday, and I’ve really learned to love it.

Getting out and walking everyday is so good for me. It’s good cardio (albeit less rigorous than sprinting steps), good for the heart, and good for my soul. It gives me a chance to catch my breath and meditate.

And it’s good for Mandy, too!

What do you do to relax? Do you enjoy a nice walk?
