      Like Daniel, I like to go on long walks in the warmer months. I have been doing more walking recently - walk into town - get a bus back sort of thing.

      It has been very cold recently and I have been living like a hermit.

      I am at the gym again. I'm an obese person who cannot bear the gym, avoids mirrors and struggles with being around people. But for some reason this time, the gym has become something of a life saver in the last months. Am fortunate that I can choose when I go so can go when very quiet. I would like to walk, but my knees are very painful (arthritis) and I can't do it. Gym is helping to strengthen my muscles to help knees.
      I over do it there, work hard to point of collapse sometimes, but it helps so much, mentally and physically and gives me routine, somewhere to go. I sabotage this effort by bingeing, but am pleased that am pushing self to work hard. It's become an overwhelming drive to "have" to do it.
      I don't achieve anything in my life otherwise and get a feel of success if I get through my gym programme.
      Also go to a mh yoga group when am up to it.

      I follow a local walking group on Facebook. They did an 8-mile walk today. I feel envious of them.

      I don't know why people do less walking in the winter, you just need the right clothes for it and less stops to keep warm if possible. I love the winter scenery. After quitting smoking I have turned up the dial on my exercise program, every day I either do a 1 hour run (well about 50% of it is walking at the moment, trying to build up to 100% running gradually), a 2 hour walk or a 1 hour dance workout. Have a day off every 3-4 days. Would more be over doing it? I feel like I could do more.

      Agreed

      I am just as keen on walking in the winter months, as in the summer

      Walking is walking - and it's good and beneficial, for both the body, and the Soul

      The soreness from my 5k ski has finally gone away and I was thinking of going skiing again, but now much of the snow has melted and the trail has gotten very icy because it has been so warm and rained a little the last 3 days.
