I did my slowest walk ever -- the whole way I told myself, no hurry, just enjoy - don't worry about speeding up, just soak in nature and listen to your music, Cathy. And that I did. There were more folks out on the trail than ever today -- a family walking and biking, individuals running, couples holding hands and enjoying their time together and individuals riding bikes or walking.
My heel bothered me a little bit, so trying not to add any more stress on it, yet continue the walking.
Norma may have been wearing her sky blue pants (see picture below), but I was wearing my blue floral capris (I love calling them pedal pushers) and a blue top. My feet had ankle socks and blue sandal birkenstocks. No pictures please for me! I know I would look dorky, but that's ok - I am not doing it to make a fashion statement.
I have this urge to do this while I am walking but try to contain myself. When i am listening to the music (and so much of it is classical or choral music), I have this urge to want to conduct the music. I have enough of a reputation of being quirky, so that would just top it off and seal it if I did.
I did notice there were several pieces of music that is so neat to walk with throughout the nature trail. One of the movements from Bach Brandenburg Concertos (and I don't remember which) hit the spot on one part of the trail and then a special arrangement of Debussy's Clair de Lune and one of Satie's selections (which I can't remember which one) was especially nice during the walk.
Anyway, I walked 3.3 miles today. It was a good walk, one that I wanted to go longer. That is a good thing!
