That’s what i feel like happened over the last week. First let me state that three miles is not that far. But me trying to walk six miles in a day for five days a week isn’t going to happen. I love walking to work because I pass by this beautiful park (photos to come). I have learned though that I can not do that walk twice in a day, especially when it’s still really hot outside. For now I have decided to do the walk to work as many times a day as I can and slowly work my way up to the full round trip.

On a happy note,I am excited for this week. Since I didn’t have to work yesterday I was left with a four-day work week. Yay me! then it got better. I planned a mini vacation with the hubby so we took Friday and Monday off. So now I only have to work Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and I’m off for the rest of the week. Super awesome if I do say so myself. Sadly the week it self was very uneventful. I will hopefully get all my duckies in order and start to show you guys pictures not that I know I can do that with my phone (yay for the Palm Pre Plus). But for now I wish you all a terrific day!

That’s the question I’ll be asking myself at least until the rains hit. I’ve decided to save money and not get a bus pass this month. That means that Monday through Friday I will be walking to work. Oh yeah and I’ll be walking home as well. It is just about three miles to my job from my front door, so the question I posed was is three miles really that far?
I remember hearing stories from my grandfather , that when he was a boy he used to walk to school and it would be uphill both ways. I know we’ve all heard some version of that story as children, and I know I always thought it was a load of…well you know. But let me be the first to tell you that it IS possible to walk uphill both ways to your destination. I found this out for myself when I walked to work several weeks ago. I live on a hill with a series of hills along my route. Not huge OMG hills, just enough of a hill to be annoying. I also noticed that it happens both ways to and from my job. Getting to work is clearly more of a climb than going home, but that just means my commute home will be faster and much more relaxing with more downhills. (That’s me finding that little bright light in a cruddy situation.)
Now I know that three miles isn’t that far but when your walking it boy does it feel like forever. I’m also a larger girl so I’m carrying lots of weight with me. Yet, Lord willing I made it to work. sweaty and tired but I was still in one piece. Maybe my outlook will change when I have to walk it home, or when I realize I have to do it everyday five days a week. But for right now, three miles isn’t that far for me 😀 .
