Rearranging the Admin, State of the Fitness

Fit To Ride

Awareness of the outside world. My choices for travel. Masked: door to door for airport & flights, at service, shopping in big stores. No mask: outside, in private house (small group & felt rude, which is NOT a good reason but it was family and I’m human), in restaurants (because eating). Inconsistent masking: quick stops in small stores, i.e. gas station food mart, and walking through hotel lobby. I was very much in the minority, but I was never the only person masked.

I’ve had all my shots, including second booster and flu. Since I don’t get out much, I have the immunity exposure of a kid starting day care. I like the idea of not breathing in everyone’s germs.


Thoughts at top. Scroll down for pretty pictures.

I’ve started something that is hard for me.

Drumroll …

I will NOT keep track of my daily walks. (Breathe. Breathe.)

Seriously, the idea of having facts and not putting them on a list is anathema to how my brain works.


The point is to walk *today* for my physical and mental health. Whether or not I walked yesterday is irrelevant.

Therefore, fitness post format will change.

Dropping. Repeat places. Assume pasture, local park, and so on.
Dropping. Data Dump. No numbers.
Keeping. New places. Because interesting.
Keeping. Data Dump. I’ll keep track of type of activities, see below, but will try not to be too tight on how often.
Keeping. Mississippi River mileage. Because also interesting. Not exact mileage. Not places unless different or notable. Will change to weekly logging. This may mean I lose a mile here or there or overestimate my virtual progress. It’ll be fine. I’ll be fine. (Breathe. Breathe.)

One-Mile Walks, New Places

Moundville Archaeological Park

Walmart. Also walked around outside of building this time. Amazing the difference in the size of the loop.

Charlotte Pier
Ontario Beach Park
Rochester NY

A pier that sticks out into Lake Ontario. While I don’t usually keep track of the mileage outside of my daily walks, I credited myself with second a mile for the day because the pier is so freaking long. [Walking With Intention]

  1. I mask in the same situations you do, but always indoors in public places and have not eaten inside a restaurant in almost a year, just twice in the two years before that. I track the distance of my daily walks and every-other-day runs but will not grout today because drenching rain!

  2. I am an obsessive list and notebook keeper. This year, I took a step back (a little, in some departments). In a way, it has been liberating. In other ways, I miss it terribly and might go back next year. I find that keeping lists and stats keeps me motivated. On the other hand, there’s a fine line between that and distracting from living life in the moment. I love your walks and particularly your “new spots”. The photo on the pier is awesome!
