I got up this morning intending to check out a new (to me) greenway and explore it while I listened to a few chapters of the third book in The Iron Druid Chronicles (it's way better than it sounds!) I wound up not really liking the greenway at all. It had a bunch of litter, it wasn't green enough to count as a greenway, and on top of that it seemed too isolated for me to want to walk it alone even though there were signs announcing that the area was under police surveillance. I wound up turning back and wandering around a safer part of town to make up for not walking the greenway. Note to self: check yelp reviews before heading to a park/greenway you have never been to.
I got in a good walk, but I was bored after dinner so I decided to go for another walk. I headed toward one of my favorite parks only to find it swarming with people. They were having a free concert and apparently the entire city decided to attend. Don't get me wrong, I love that these kinds of free events are available, but I was there to burn some calories and did not like having to weave in and out of all the slow-strolling park goers ambling along the path. On top of that there were a bunch of unsupervised
hell spawn children on scooters getting in everyone's way. I stayed until I couldn't take it anymore then headed home. That was supposed to be the end of my walk, but when I looked at my Fitbit stats I realized that I was tantalizingly close to a daily step PR on Fitbit. I dragged myself down to the gym and made myself walk on the treadmill until I reached 35,000 steps. It felt good and I can't wait until I'm able to run that far in a day!
