I Walked Over Three Miles Yesterday and Another Mile Today
I finally discovered a site where I can find out how far I have gone when I have finished a walk . I have been busily going back over some of my past walks and mapping and saving the routes. I name the walk, map it out manually, record the time it took to finish, and then decide if I also want to save it as a workout . This just may motivate me to get out and get more exercise because I will know just what I have accomplished.
I already described the walk I took yesterday . I mapped the way and the way back separately, since it wasn't a straight round trip. I detoured through the shopping centers on the way home. I didn't have to stick to the trails and roads while mapping , so I could even map my route through the J.C. Penny store. I have discovered there are there mapping tools online for those will smart phones, but I don't have anything with a GPS.
My route was more confined to my tract this morning. The introductory photo shows that I learned my lesson yesterday and I'm wearing a hat. This is the first selfie I've taken with my camera.
Below is a portion of the Charolais Corridor Trail in Paso Robles – the part that runs behind the tract I live in -- between South River Road and Riverbank Lane. That portion of the trail is is .37 miles long. But I walked a total of 1.09 miles including this stretch because I walked from my home to get to the trail and back. The trail runs between a drainage ditch that leads to the river and the wall of the housing tract. The photo is looking towards Larry Moore Park, but that's too far ahead to see.
When I started out this morning I was expecting to walk the tract snapping photos of some of the elaborate Halloween decorations I saw while walking my precinct, but I only ran across one on my route today. I'll take a different route next time. This is the one Halloween photo I got.
Do you or your neighbors have elaborate yard decorations for Halloween?
