New morning routine: Park in lot farthest from building, but nearest the walking path, and take a walk BEFORE work. This is relaxing and at the same time invigorating way to start the day. It’s a great time to plan my day, get in some exercises – even some stretches and push-ups. It also assures me a walk if my day “gets away from me” as it often does. Bonus – some days I get two walks – like yesterday I found I had time for a noon-time walk, after doing my morning walk.
Let’s see how this holds for the winter. It will be a nice practice for summer – when the heat and humidity can make the un-shaded walking path unbearable over the noon hour.
