On the days I don't go to the gym, I sort of propel myself out the door and attempt to walk for an hour or so.
Today, instead of just wandering, I decided to pick a destination and aim for it. I've been meaning to check out a new Conrans store that opened a couple miles from me. That's where I walked.
As for the experience, I have one word:
On the plus side, I walked farther and with more purpose than usual.
On the negative side, I walked on busy, exhaust-choked streets. Plus, when I got where I was going, turned out it wasn't Conrans (a furniture store I remember fondly from the '80s), but rather Crate & Barrel, which I already get a catalog for.
Ah well. There are 365 days in a year in which for me to try new things - they can't all be winners.
I have to remember that, sometimes, the reward is in the effort.
