Additional Miles by Walking

I have started walking a lot during the day. I previously always walked at least an extra 2 miles a day in short walks throughout the day. I like walking. I enjoy the fresh air and with my job, I am stuck at a desk for 8-10 hours a day. Sometimes, I need to get up and stretch my legs. 

I always walk for about 15 minutes from the bus stop to my office and from my office back to the bus stop. There is a closer bus stop I could take, but it doesn’t same that much time for me.  I also take a 10 minute walk mid morning to stretch my legs after sitting at my desk for a few hours.

Then in the early afternoon my friend and I head out on our daily 45 minute walk to get some exercise during the day. Finally, I have been getting off at the first bus stop in the city and walking about 30 minutes on my way home. I calculated, rather than waiting for my particular bus, doing it his way, takes about 15 minutes longer than taking a bus.

All this walking adds up. I feel great, sometimes, I listen to music, other times, I just think.  This is helping to supplement my running miles as well.

How much do you walk?
