Daily walk

leave a comment »

It’s clear that typing is insufficient as exercise, so today I went for my walk. Not quite 45 minutes, but tomorrow I’ll extend it by a couple of blocks and that should do it. I’m in chapter 9 of the second part of Don Quixote, so he hasn’t quite set out on the third sally.

The secret for me seems to be to go for the walk at a specific time: when the clock hits the time, I hit the door, stopping whatever I’m doing and making the walk the top priority. That is how I get it done.

I also need to add some mat exercises, but I’ll stick with just the walk for a week.

What I saw on the walk—and next time I take my camera: First, in someone’s yard they had planted an artichoke and let it go ahead and flower. Very striking: an intensely blue giant thistle.

Second, as I walked up the street I disturbed one of the small (almost tiny) deer that make Pacific Grove their home. This was a buck, with a very nice set of antlers. As I approached, on the same side of the street, he abandoned his nibbling of the shrubbery and walked slowly into the middle of the street and turned to watch me.
