Walking thread Chewy!!Twilight SparkleCountry code: ponies-twilight.png, country type: ponyflag, valid:   42073337

tl;dr: How many of you here take walks outside regularly? Let's talk about the activity/hobby of walking.

I have been taking daily walks since early November last year and I have started to really love it. Sometimes I just do a short 10-minute walk around my immediate neighborhood, sometimes I walk downtown to get coffee and/or food, sometimes I push myself to go much further distances and into neighborhoods I'm not familiar with, and a few times I have even taken walks in an entirely different town.

I walk even when its really cold, or grey, or raining, and today it even started snowing/hailing while I was walking, but it wasn't too bad. I'm still kind of amazed that I have been able to do this and am continuing to do this, because for so long I engaged in basically zero physical activity at all. I was (and to an extent still am) basically a couch potato. I also eat pretty poorly, although in recent years I have incorporated a lot of fruit into my diet, which I'm hoping helps at least a little.

This is one of those examples of something I never really thought I'd be able to do, but now here I am consistently doing it, and furthermore enjoying it, like I said every single day. It feels really good and I think it happened because I basically just reached a point where I realized "I need to do more, I need to do this" and I truly set my mind to it and just did it.

pic related is a sign in my neighborhood that amused me.

I use to walk a lot. I live on the East Coast Greenway, which is a great walking/biking path. I used it more when I couldnt see it from my house haha.

I really should start again.

The longest i ever walked on that path was like 30 miles... i walked to a friends house on the other side of the state. Was really fun, except i was wearing boots, work boots, cheap ones... so blister city.

I like to hike a lot, but obv not daily. I should get into a routine. I see you posting about it and feel like a lazy jerk haha.

I don't walk, but I started running 2.5 mile stretches a few months ago. I used to do it every day, but fell off of my routine throughout November and December. Over the new year, I'm going to be more consistent, and in a month's time, I want to try and cut my mile time down to 8 minutes.

I've been walking consistently every day for the past four days, on the order of roughly three miles total, going back and forth from a local shopping plaza / food district.
I'm fairly impressed, as until recently I was something of a shut-in (long story), and I've not been especially exhausted by this, so I am hoping to try out new routes and destinations that go somewhat longer. I certainly enjoy the rather free feeling, and finding random weirdness in the neighborhood is a simple pleasure I enjoy too.

I used to really, really love midnight walks.
Now I can't take them without creepy guys following behind me in cars yelling "Hey baby girl!", so that's... nice.
Maybe I just need to take them even later so even assholes aren't out.

I used to go for midnight walks when I lived in a pretty rural area. That was one of the few things I liked about living in a small town.

Yeah, cities have lots of upsides, and I really couldn't imagine living in a rural or suburban area full-time... but I really, really love getting out of the city on a frequent basis. It can be kinda loud and frightening living here sometimes.
Back where I grew up, you had to walk five miles to get anywhere, but that does come with the benefit that you can walk those five miles with no problems, generally.

I walk to and from work every day. (It's about 20 minutes each way.)

A light snow started while I was walking today.

I was diagnosed with epilepsy a few months before I went to Job Corps, and my mother and sister moved to the city while I was at Job Corps (but not because of my epilepsy). Even if I wanted to live in a small town, I can't drive and in a small town, easily reachable bus stops aren't guaranteed. In order to get to the closest bus stop, I had to either get a ride (Getting a carpool to a bus stop is ridiculous) or do a half-hour bike ride.
Plus I grew up in Southern California and I was raised in a (fairly) large city.

I just hate doing cardio in any shape or form. But if weather isn't permitting you just got to make do inside. Don't know about walking though. Back and forth would be pretty dull after a while. TV might help.

Took a long one today, didn't even need a coat. Wasn't very exhausted afterwords either, some coffee recharged me pretty quickly.

I walk quite a bit. I try to maintain myself slim, and also save some pennies from the bus.
It's the easiest exercise.

Walking is definitely good for keeping healthy and in shape! I walk 15-20 minutes twice a day each weekday.

When on college, I also walk down from stairs insteadof using the elevator. I only use it togo up to the 8th floor, and then I walk all the way down by myself.

I walk my city because I know how to navigate it quicker than some buses.

If I jog or sprint certain segments, I can be as fast as any of the local buses.

Also I do walk as a hobby, especially at night when I don't have to encounter as many people.

I don't like walking less than 5 miles though, it just seems like a waste.

I am now doing walks every day that are a minimum of 30mins. Today I walked to one of the places my mom works, a good ways away from the house. On friday I took a walk to the convenience store, then the library, then the record store, and then dunkin donuts.

Feeling good about this.

I really love walking both with music/podcasts and just in silence. I avoid going out in rain etc., but I really like it when the weather is cold or at least mildly cold.

It helps to clean my mind.

For the last week I've decided to do more walking. As in go around around 3 or 4pm and walk about for an hour or so.

Problem is I'm already bored with it. I dunno where else I can walk about where I live.

I didn't bother going for walks this weekend because it's been raining. But if the weather improoves I'll go out and about again.
