I have a walking partner. We’ve walked together for five years and I’ve grown comfortable with him. However, this year, like last year, our Spring Breaks don’t coincide and I have to walk alone.
It’s been raining since Monday so, unlike last year, I’m confined to indoor walking. I have exercise tapes but spending so much time indoors is making me stir crazy so I walk at a local mall… alone.
I listen to podcasts mostly as I pace in circles. My favorite podcasts (found on iTunes) are the Naked Scientists, Stuff You Missed in History Class, and Catholic Stuff You Should Know.
Each circuit is 1.3 miles (if you walk in all the nooks and crannies).Mallwalking hours are from 8-10AM. The lights are dimmed. Music plays (alternative rock today.) Stores are closed. Their gates are closed and their displays hidden.
