Walking and Podcasting
Permalink  
 


The biggest part of my exercise regime involves my Sony Walkman.  I try to walk at least 5 days a week but it does get a bit boring walking alone.  My "carrot" is that I podcast Mark Levin each morning and listen during my walk.  If you haven't listened to Mark before, he is a step up from any other radio talk show host you have heard.  I almost forget where I am sometimes.  He's that instructive and engaging.  You get to hear a 3 hour show in less than 2 hours (few commercials), you get your excercise and you're up to date on yesterday's most important stories.

Sony Walkman, i pod, and P3 player. Whenever takes to get you up and out every day. I don't watch much TV and I hate all commercials on the radio, so I to use these things to keep me company. But what I enjoy most is finding other seniors to exercise with. Exercise, socialize and develop new friendships. Life don't get no better than this! I posted a little note at a local gyms/senior center and a couple fo church bulletin boards. You won't believe the response I got. I have three groups of two or three people each, some walk every day, some can only join us occasionally.

Stay on track enjoyed life, And don't leave life--until you're exhausted.

After being retired for three years and being moderately active I found myself feeling like I was 20 years older than I actually was. Like you, I found that walking daily during the week made a world of difference. You don't even have to walk all that far, maybe just three of four blocks to start and you will notice more strength in your legs, your mind is clearer and you just feel better in general. What can be simpler than that?, baring physical restrictions of course.

So, if you have been feeling like a slug lately then something as simple as going for a long walk daily will make a marked difference and you will be so glad that you did.

My wife and me try to walk at least 3 miles per day, and play Pickle Ball when we can. I our spare time Line Dancing is our thing and hiking gets thrown in once and awhile.

walking is one of the best exercises, I walk all over Manhattan. I used to swim- really miss it! One exercise I seem to be able to do on a regular basis is yoga-it's  one of the best ways to stretch, I love to be able to rest my brain and all my stiff joints get a good work-out. It's cheap to do- you can find a yoga work out on exercise TV- a free cable station. I recommend adding Pilates and Tai-chi to the Yoga work out as well. If you do swim, find out about aqualates (pilates that is done under water) and underwater exercising- it takes all the pressure off your joints but allows for resistance and strength training

I go to Curves, and am supposed to go three times a week. I started that anyway Mon, Wed, and Fri. Once in awhile I miss a day but try to keep it up. I used to walk over two miles a day but have a hard time now wilth it because of arthritis in my lower four disks. Physical Therapy helped for six weeks then they suggested water aerobics but since I was a curves member before.  I had my second cancer breast cancer that time where I quit curves because I couldn't lift my arm or use it for exercising, but now I am back and it is helping. I hope to be able to get back to walking on the days in between curves after awhile.  I love to listen to either music, or books on tape (James Patterson's mysterys though I have read them all too)Either one used to help me walk farther would forget I was doing something that was good for me wink. Hope to build my immune system, or strength back if I can do both of those soon.

I LOVE Mark Levine but I live in the mountains and there is no reception to listen to it - plus I have no idea how I would podcast it to my walkman.

I wish I was more savy but alas Im out of the tech loop.

Hi Priscella,

Sounds like you have a plan. Curves is a great way for women to get the exercise that they need.

Just keep at it !

I am a runner myself but I know how difficult it can be with arthritis.

Any type of exercise is good. I walk to as many stores as I can rather than take my truck. Climb the stairs if  you are at a dept. store rather than take the escalator.

Merry Christmas to you and good health in the New year.

Hello Guys i think that (Walking) is one of the primary gaits of locomotion among legged animals, and is generally more slowly than running and other gaits. Walking is determined like a phase in which one's body system containers over the divisions with each phase.while (podcast) is an sound computer file that's made available on the Internet for anyone to pay attention to. Podcast are available for everything from sermons to brief experiences, songs to mad rantings.Thanks!!

PLEASE STAY MOVING !!!!! Food for thought !!!!

Self MOBILITY is important; and should never be taken for granted.

Please take it from one who landed in wheel-chair for 18+ months - several accident (2 out of 6 & I was the passenger in all but 1). The last one was more damaging (physically) but more attention-getting since maturing can be difficult enough. This last accident; we were the spam between two car carriers and our car flipped on roof with the car behind us sitting on top of our car-- so we (all) are very grateful to be alive and walking !!!

And for those - electronically challenged::: YOUTUBE, ROKU, FACEBOOK, etc offer many exercise programs -- to fit anyone's liking.

There are many good programs (one time purchase) as well. I have quite a few as I do change routine from time to time.

Respectfully,
K
