Sometimes it's a chore, but most times, it's enjoyable, relaxing and fun.

In the winter it's a chore, in the summer a pleasure! And it depends on location too - I love getting out for a hike when I'm on holidays! Or a stroll on a nice summer day down a favorite shopping street!

It is more of a chore than enjoyable experience unless I'm travelling. I'm not a big walker otherwise and much prefer to run or work out on the elliptical.

No walking is not a chore.

Maybe when I first started , but I feel better about it now.

I can listen to music or an audio book when walking.

I also park farther away and walk in to the stores , etc.

It's something I look forwarded to it we are having a snow storm right now. I should be starting in April... I really don't do any walking in the winter my sister today was asking if she could walk with me. She says I'm very discipline with my walks and she wants to lose some weight. I have a lot of health issues, but I won't let it stop me it feels so good after doing it, I feel very good of my self once I'm done...I LOVE WALKING YAHOOOOOO :):womanvery-happy:

Oh ick-snowstorm! It's beautiful where I live right now but it is supposed to change over very quickly early tomorrow. Ugg. The cold weather seems like it has been around forever this year.

i really like to walk cuz it is addicting for me esp when I get going...it really helps when I have my ipod with me and I can listen to my music or I can listen to the radio station...makes the time go fast for me...everybody always says that you should go with a buddy but I find that someone is either too slow or too fast...have not met a compatible walking buddy yet....but that is ok with me....I just want the warm weather to keep coming, I am soooo done with the cold weather...

Me either on the walking buddy Susan. On weekends my swh will walk with me when he is off. I use my mp3 for listening to books while I walk. Love it.

It depends on the day - how I'm feeling, and what else may be going on.
