Walk With a Buddy
"The walk seems to fly by"
What most of us know by experience was confirmed yesterday during my physical examination.
Doctor: Your heart is strong, pulse rate is low, like an endurance athlete's.
GH: I walk briskly for an hour or more about five times a week, usually with a fellow (retired) teacher. And I ride an exercise bike all winter.
Doctor: Walking with a friend helps you get out the door more regularly.
I agreed. And sometimes the hour-long walk feels like it's done in half the time because of brisk conversation. So, I say walk with a buddy and aim for the hills.
