Walking to Work in Winter

It’s been on my mind for a very long time, but I can always think of a reason not to walk to work.

Then, on Sunday night it rained, and I knew it would create a boggy mess at the end of the driveway. I could drive through it. I have before, but I shouldn’t.

I drifted off to sleep, making plans to walk in the rain.

I did walk. It didn’t rain. But it didn’t look particularly inviting either.

So out of practice, I forgot gloves.

The following morning, a gorgeous fog settled, and this time I eagerly headed out on foot. I love walking in fog. It makes everything a little more interesting.

I forgot my glasses.

Thursday was my the third walk to work that week, and there was bright blue sky. So common these days, I didn’t think to grab an image for this post.

I could get use to this again. It’s been a few year’s since I’ve walked regularly to work, and it’s only a 20 minute stroll along some excellent footpaths.

But it was important to ease into it. Remember: Build up gradually.

If you’ve been inactive for some time (like I’ve been over that stinking hot summer), start at a level that you can manage easily and gradually build up.
