Here I am all ready for a fun walk. I prefer getting all the exercise I can outdoors.

Thank you KN. This wasn't today. It was a previous day. Walking is good for the soul. It's so much better in a natural environment than a treadmill. Certain times of year force you to that but it is so boring.
:) It's just a different angle. I'm not oriental. I have done my eyeshadow differently before for an Asian look. I look quite a bit different when my hair is pulled back like this as well.

Great photo Kyrroeth. You look ready to go! I see you have your water all ready too. That's very important. I know people who exercise and forget to do the little things, like stay properly hydrated, and lose half the effect of the workout because of it. What kind of walking of walking do you do? Is it mostly flat terrain or do you mix it up? Do you hike for your walking? Personally, I like it more when I can hike but that's something I have to plan any more.
I like to walk too. It keeps me centered and helps break the monotony of a long day, not to mention that it's darn good for you. I find I like to mix up the terrain when I walk and I try to find areas that a mix of flat and hills. Occasionally I throw on my old Army rucksack with a couple of weights in it to change things up a bit. I can't do the 120lbs or more rucksacks that I used to hump when I was in the Army, but I can put in a healthy weight. When I can't get a good long walk in I spend time on my elliptical.
It depends upon the time I have available. I prefer to hike in the hills when I can. If time doesn't permit I will walk in the city. I like the hills. The up and down hill really helps with the workout. I try to throw some interval training in the middle as well. In the country I will usually take a backpack.
The peace and quiet on the hiking trails is so much more enjoyable. It's fun to be in nature and see wildlife. People out hiking are usually much friendlier than people in town as well.

Yes, part of it is meeting people who actually make eye contact and say hello. I also like the fact that as you walk you can get a sense of nature. I love the smells when out in nature, both the good and bad. As humans we don't use our senses like we once did and I think it's affecting us. That goes for all senses, like smell and hearing. We use them, but not in the way they were meant to be used, as a warning or as a indicator for something. I like being in nature to "Tune" them back up.
