I have been a bit impatient waiting for my leg to return to normal. Not walking for a few days and now just being able to go three miles I appreciate walking all the more. Just being outside early and hearing the birds and seeing the beauty around me is awesome. It doesn't matter if I walk 3 or 6 or 8 miles, I am blessed to be able to walk at all. So many people can't even walk a mile. I feel like I am becoming obsessed with keeping track of the miles and having too many goals set. I need to just enjoy the walking without setting goals about it.
So though I will still post about my walks and post how far I walk, I am not going to be concerned if I don't make at least 6 miles EVERY DAY.
I will no longer keep an excel spread sheet of my miles.
I will no longer keep the Ticker Factory goal of walking 2000 miles a year at the bottom of my blog and have already removed it.
I will no longer keep track of my walking and exercising with WalkerTracker and have taken that off my sidebar too.
I WILL just enjoy walking no matter how far or having to have goals about it!! : )
So this morning I had a nice walk down the street and along the one path. I walked over a couple of footbridges, heard the birds chirping and enjoyed the green of spring starting to come out all around me. It was a cloudy morning and 45 degrees. A few other people were out enjoying the morning too. I had a great walk and was glad to be able to walk the 3.1 miles that I did.
Ken is over at the old house for part of the day building trusses for the roof of our shed which we will start building soon on our land. He is trying to get some things done here to save time building on the land. I usually would have gone to help but still want to rest my leg. The up and down that I would have to do might not be such a good idea.
So I will be at home doing the usual every day house chores and then read, knit or maybe do some work on the huge counted cross stitch project I'm working on.
Tonight we are going to Ram's Head Live in Annapolis to see Shawn Colvin who I've never heard off before, but I'm sure I'll enjoy the show. : )
Enjoy your Saturday and do something different and fun.
A happy day to you.
Difficult times have helped me to understand
better than before,
how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way,
and that so many things that one goes worrying about
are of no importance whatsoever.
