Walking for Hawaii - Days 3 and 4

Reuben and I walked together in the late evening on Thursday night and last night. It's hard to get motivated to get out there but once we're walking it feels great. Until the end when I'm so exhausted I can't wait to step through the front door. It was pretty muggy again last night so the cold shower at the end was a nice reward. Reuben got blisters on the bottoms of his feet last night, so we're thinking a good pair of shoes is going to be well worth the investment.
Going late at night is good because there is no hot sun beating down on you but it also makes it not so safe for exploring areas with no street lights. We wanted to walk by the railway tracks but it was too dark and I was picturing the boogey man behind every tree so we turned around.

Our front door - the inside

Well, I finally got up the energy to paint the inside of our front door. Most of the trim is done around it too. Reuben just has to finish up with some of the baseboards so don't look at that. What do you think?
You'll recognize the colour from our livingroom. I find that it ties everything together nicely.

Walking for Hawaii - Day 2

On Tuesday evening, Reuben and I walked together for 30 min at around 8:30pm. It's starting to get dark earlier and earlier, signalling the end of summer.

Walking for Hawaii

I decided I really do need to start building up some energy for our trip to Hawaii as I'm sure we'll be doing a lot of walking. was my first day. I hope to record a 30 min walk (for now and up it to 1 hour after a couple of weeks) at least 5 days a week.

Day 1 - 30 min walk

It was quite muggy and I got my heart rate going and saw some parts of my neighbourhood that I'd never seen before trying to find a route that wasn't along any busy streets. I listened to David Grey.
