I’ve been doing more walking lately and I’ve been enjoying it. Sadly, much like my experience while hiking, my shoes have been pretty unfriendly to my feet. In an effort to keep my feet happy I have been wearing my Fivefingers more. Though I originally bought them for hiking and the outdoors, I am using them more and more for walking about town.
Another of the side effects of taking the bus instead of biking is that I am walking more. Since the little man’s day care is just about a mile from my desk and the bus that I ride home drops me off about a mile from home, I am walking an extra two miles every day that I ride the bus. I could try to minimize this, but honestly, using anything other than your legs to travel a mile is just plain lazy.
