Family Walks in the Evening

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

my view of our family walk by sassyseltzer from FlickrLaura: Hey Matt! What are you doing to keep fit?

Matt: Me? What do I do?

Laura: Yeah, you look fit. What are you doing to stay fit?

Matt: I’m taking a lot of long walks in the evenings.

Laura: Alone or with the family?

Matt: With the family. After an hour long walk with a twenty pound baby, you really feel it. I’m doing a lot of low intensity exercise because on The Splendid Table on NPR had a show about how a lot of low intensity is better than high intensity.

It’s funny. When I just ask normal people in my life how they are keeping healthy and fit, I learn more about about living a healthy life. Long walks with the family sounds like the most wonderful way to keep fit.

    Yeah, carrying the kids makes it harder. My son has been pushing me to go for walks because he started riding his bike more and we got a new stroller he’s excited about. So I skipped the treadmill at the gym today knowing a family walk will happen at some point.
