I love walking. No matter how tired I am, if I push myself (or am pushed by a friend) and I get my trainers on and get out and walk, I always feel much better.
I used to be the most sincerely unfit person. When I think back a good few years, even walking a short distance, say to the corner shop, would have me thinking of taking the car. I had all sorts of excuses as to why my sedentary lifestyle was ok. Little did I know that walking could make a huge difference not only to my physical health but my mental health.
Today’s quote is from the oh so fabulous Winnie the Pooh (AA Milne), is a reminder that while we are walking for exercise, walking with a friend adds another dimension.
Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead
Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow
Just walk beside me and be my friend.
I am so honoured to have friends who walk beside me,on actual walks and generally in life.
Today’s quote is going out to all my friends who have encouraged me on my fitness journey and taken the time to walk by my side. (You know who you are!)
