I really appreciate your words about walking. I have never been a big walker because I always felt it was a ‘waste’ and I could be running, burning more calories.

I went for a 1.5 hour walk before work the other day and it was amazing. I literally came back home smiling, it was surreal. I did cheat because I was listening to a podcast, but not focusing on my pace, distance covered or calories burnt was extremely refreshing.

I think that people who are trying to get into walking should download a few podcast they are interested in because I found myself trying to extend the walk, so I could hear just a few more minutes.

I write about issues that are near and dear to my heart, with the hope that my stories, experiences, and struggles may empower others: amanlitt.ca
