Walking on Wednesday - I got my new shoes on

Well, not yet, but first thing tomorrow I sure will.

I finally decided to invest in a proper new pair of walking shoes. Well, technically they are sneakers, but hubby hates that word, so just call them my walking shoes.

It had been at least 3 years since I bought new sneakers, errr walking shoes. I noticed the treads on mine were a bit worn, well, nearly smooth actually, and thought I should really get some new ones because maybe that is why my knee has been hurting me. 

So off I went this afternoon to the mall with my daughter for some new walking shoes. Is it bad I bought them the first store I went in, the first pair I tried on? Well, that is how much I love these shoes. 

I put them on and said, "Wha??? This is how proper walking shoes should feel?" MAN what I was missing.

So tomorrow morning, I will wake up, have my coffee and check my emails, slip on my new walking shoes and new sweatpants, and probably have the best walk I have had since we moved here. (I have worn those same tired shoes each walk here, a year and a half now) 

It will be the first time I have walked all week. I managed to walk every day last week, but this week none yet. Now there is no excuse, and I am looking forward to it. 

But tonight, I am too tired to take pics, and too tired to think about walking. So will do my first post without pictures, and save that for tomorrow.

Night all, and here's to a wonderful Thursday, with my new shoes on.


  1. I hope you didn't think I was making fun of your new sweatpants before. Makesme think really, I'm due for some new ones (I have these fleece ones I LOVE but it's been too damn warm this winter to snuggle up in them). How far do you walk every day? You're inspiring me. I wind up at the gym but I wouldn't mind some fresh air...or rather, how long do you walk for? And do you listen to music or to the birds?

  2. I got a new pair of walking shoes at the beginning of the year and there is no better feeling then taking your first walk in you new shoes. You enjoy, new shoes are the best!
    Everyday Inspired

  3. Don't worry, a post without pictures is okay - I do it myself.

    Glad you could get a new pair of shoes. I need a new pair myself - the ones I have still have plenty of cushion and tread, but the top is falling apart.... I hate shoe shopping, but I'll have to do it...

  4. Thank you all!
    Sandra, I didn't think you were making fun of me, I really a excited about my new sweatpants. lol.

    I walk at least a half hour, sometimes 45 minutes, when I walk. There is also usually 2 to 3 hills I have to go up, and down, on my course. If I could remember to load my mp3 player on my computer, and charge it, I would listen to music, but for now I just listen to the birds chirp, and all the dogs in the neighborhood bark. There are a lot of dogs in the neighborhood, lol.

    It is cloudy today, and I don't want to get my new shoes wet, but I am going anyway.

    Have a great day all, and Sunfire, good luck finding some new shoes.
