Dave suggested that I walk.
I know, right? I thought the same thing!
Dave mentioned this past Saturday that I might do well to set aside my lofty goals of the extreme cardio-burn, the deep meditative reflection, the massive decrease in calories and massive increase in activity…And instead, Walk.
His thinking, and stay with me on this, is that I should make ONE change. Nothing more. Just Walk. Walking is good for your body, mind and spirit. Take a walk, every morning. Start every day with a walk.
I’ve told you before and this confirms it; this guy is nuts.
But, despite the lunacy of his idea, I decided to give it a try. And so, my wife and I walked today. We strapped on our reflective bands and headed out into the early morning air to stride along quiet roads and early morning, misty streets.
Imagine my surprise when I realized he was right! I felt better. I actually worked up a little glow by the time we were done.
I don’t know if this will lead to anything but it is possible that taking that first step, is in fact, the first real step in my Journey to 50!
