In a few places I saw field with a fair dusting of snow today. It's likely that this results just from very localized snow squalls rather than remaining from our last snowfall over a week ago.
Walking Time: 1 hour. I finished the cardiac rehab program nearly a month ago, and it's amazing how fast your dedication to getting the time in wanes! In the past I've counted steps, and counted distance. I've used treadmills and bikes. This summer I was riding my 'real' bike around the roads (that's what I enjoy most). In the more distant past I worked out regularly, and skated for fun. The cardiac rehab program measures time spent in effort serious enough to raise your heart rate.
The loop road in our little subdivision can be walked in easy 15 minute increments. So now my plan is to walk the dog for part of my time every day, and go for a longer walk on a trail someplace two or three times a week. My goal is to get in an hour a day, on average, over the week. So I'm going to post my times here, just to remind myself. I'm inspired by a certain blogger I read who gets up in the dark and walks 5 or 6 miles every day! I can't do that, but I think I can achieve my modest target. And you can keep me honest.
