It turns out I walked 7.36 miles yesterday, so I’m clearly getting back in the swing of things after taking a week off.
How’d I do it? Well, some of the credit goes to my habit of walking at work. I park in an inconvenient location, and then hit the nature trails outside my office on breaks. But some of it comes from having a five year old. Because, instead of asking if he wanted to go walking (the answer would probably have been “no, I want to watch PBS Kids”), I just said “come on, we’re taking Bosley for a walk”. He got super excited about that, and wanted to pick where we walked. Because of that, we walked all over the neighborhood – up hills and down, out to the main road and back. If I hadn’t made him turn around and head back to the house so he could get his bath, we’d probably still be walking now.
Good times. And this time, I didn’t even have to bribe him with Pokemon.
