Walking more for EXERCISE

My husband and I just returned from a great trip to Charleston, SC! We were celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary! While we were down there, we did a ton of walking. If you have ever been to Charleston, you know what I mean.

It is a very beautiful and historic town with lots to see, so we walked everywhere.
We walked around the battery, the market, did some Christmas shopping, King Street, Waterfront Park, art galleries, etc.  We even went to a tuba concert!

All this is to say that walking is such great EXERCISE!!! It is an exercise that you can do anywhere! You can walk in your neighborhood or the mall or at a park. If you get bored in your neighborhood, you can walk in the next one over. Some parks have hiking trails, which can add a challenge for your body, especially if they have hills. Trails are nice because they are softer than walking on sidewalks. Finlay Park (downtown Columbia, SC) even has stairs, which can further increase your workout.

One last thought: Before you go walking, be sure to wear the right shoes! I definitely did not walk around Charleston in high heels!
