Walk With Deliberation
Today I didn't exactly march, but when I chose not to go to the gym I had to do something to get exercise. Because the weather was too frigid to be outside, I used a trip to a large grocery store to get a good chunk of my 10,000 daily steps in.
There weren't many people shopping, so it was easy to do. I started in the Produce section and went up and down each of the 15 long aisles until I got to the far side of the store, breaking stride only when I swerved around a cart, turned a corner, or stopped to put a needed item into my shopping bag.
Halfway through the store I passed a store employee going in the opposite direction pushing a large dust mop. We crossed again in the next aisle, and the one after that. It started to feel weird, so at the end of the next aisle I stopped and browsed the end cap merchandise until the employee swept past me and turned the next corner. Then I continued my route in the other direction.
