Benefits of walking.
I went for a walk yesterday with Anna and Katja. It was one hour fun! Apparently, I think we went all around Tapiola.
I do love walking. Many reason of why walking is good. I got this list from http://www.aarp.org/health/fitness/walking/a2004-06-17-walking-numerousbenefits.html, check it out if you want more explaination.

Personally, I prefer walking than running. I tend to short of breath too easily and it doesn’t make me comfortable when I feel I need to think how to breath properly.
It is not so bad to walk alone though I won’t mind having a company to walk along. We don’t need to talk much. I begin to understand about silence is gold in certain time. I used to feel uncomfortable not to talk whenever I’m with someone.
I walked much back home and the reason is I don’t have a car nor a bike. I have a bike now! I used to keep bugging my dad to buy me a bike since I was 13. After 14 years, I got one! I got a bike from my boyfriend who I didn’t expect to buy it! I love it.
I still remember my “walking days” in KL. Going through LRT, stuffed KTM and walk 15 minutes from KLCC to Pavilion. Matter of fact, I feel thats all I’ve been doing. Walking to work, standing up in the train, walking to shopping mall and sit to eat. I feel kinda bored. Though walking is the best!
So Keep Walking!
