Walking

Last night I walked from my home to Central Cinema and back. Normally I would have driven but parking there has been a challenge in the past and it was a nice night. I had a few twinges during the walk but no major pain and no lasting effect this morning. I wore different shoes than I normally do for walking and I'm going to take that as a sign that the shoes I have been wearing aren't good for my feet. Arch supports and thick soles do not work for me. The closer I can get to no shoe at all the less my ankles hurt.

According to the route I entered in Gmaps Pedometer I walked 3.7649 miles and burned 469 calories. Not a huge workout but it is a start and a step in the right direction. I have learned that keeping track of numbers such as distance traveled and calories burned helps to keep me motivated. Motivated I need to stay because I know I will feel better if I am more active.

Next time I shouldn't have dinner, three pints of beer, dessert and popcorn during my walk but I did go to a double feature of The Dark Crystal (1982) and Labyrinth (1886). :)
