Unhealthy Activity

It has been recently pointed out to me that my motorcycle may be bad for my health. Last summer, I was taking every available opportunity to walk. Many days accumulating well in excess of 30k steps. This summer, it has been a challenge to even get to 20k steps per day and the treadmill hasn't been used since March. Anytime I get some free time, I now want to go riding somewhere. Last year, I went for a long walk just about every evening and maybe I need to start doing that again. I have a new favorite route that has a couple of hills and is about 8.5 miles. The only problem with it is that there is no shoulder along Yankovich Road and there is a surprising amount of traffic most of which is going way too fast for that narrow of a road.

Friday Evening - I felt guilty after writing this post so I went for a walk in the afternoon followed by a long walk into town after I got home. The weather was great this evening with blue skies and 200 mile visibility. Now, I am relaxing listening to the steel drum band, Cold Steel, practice in a remodeled bar. Lots of steps today, kind of like last summer.
