Fit To Ride
Awareness of the outside world. Shout out to the woman in the parking garage. Four people were already on the elevator. Although there was plenty of space, there was not enough socially-distant space. She indicated she would wait for the next elevator. From the back corner, I give her a thumbs up. She returned my gesture with a brief nod. It was a small moment, taking longer to tell than to occur. It made me feel that we are all in this together. We need more of that.
UAB Medicine Walking Trail
UAB Medicine Buildings and Concourse Walkways
30 November 2021
~1 mile. GPS was still on kilometers from a virtual 5K over the weekend.
Went in for my annual mammogram. (Have you had yours – as appropriate? Did you know they stop at age 75? But I digress.) Afterwards, I did my daily mile in a loop around the UAB Hospital buildings, using corridors and over-the-street walkways.
Searching on “UAB Medicine Buildings and Concourse Walkways” leads to a PDF of the map. Wasn’t sure how to link to a PDF.
The hospital has put up motivational signs to encourage walking. I started taking pictures of the signs to send to my online walking group. I ended up with so many that I decided a post was more appropriate than clogging up the group message queue. And that is why you got a walk report on a one-mile walk. (Usually, I do posts on 5Ks.)
Update. Listed with monthly walks. [The Next Step, State of the Fitness, November]
Stay safe. Stay sane.
