It has been six months since I took a long walk. Only when I go outdoors and walk for more than hour, then it is a long walk. It is always a unique experience and I get a unique feeling of high. My thoughts become clear and life gets going easy.
Why did I start walking again?
I have started feeling some of the symptoms explained in the blog by the Physeek Team on obesity. Thanks to Dr. Ganesh Raja for his inspiration and I liked his instagram handle name – thewayfarerexplorer.
I was feeling sluggish. I was no more active. I had a bad feeling that something was not happening right.
When I woke up today at my usual time, 10:00 AM, I did not feel refreshed. I just wore my slippers and stepped out with a mask.
I didn’t know which way to go. I was thirsty and hungry. I wanted to drink some refreshing juice and eat something nice. I headed towards HRBR layout, expecting to reach the Corner House – ice cream shop.
The roads were empty, no shops were open to buy water/juice in my route. I finally reached the destination, only to find that it is open but there was no dine-in. I walked away and found Belgium Waffles. I ordered a honey waffle with vanilla ice cream. It was delicious and that made my day.
On my return, I realized that my legs started aching and I was feeling tired. I was also getting late for my work. I was constantly checking my watch for my steps count, distance, calories and time spent. I was reading and responding to WhatsApp messages and finally made it to my home. I took a good bath and felt refreshed.
I always feel that walking should not have a destination and I should not be in hurry. I just want to explore something faraway.
Thanks for reading my blog. Have a nice day.
