Keep A Pair Of Walking Shoes In Car


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I keep an extra pair of shoes and socks in the trunk of my car so I can throw them on and get some walking in sometimes like if I find I have a little extra time, or see a trail or park that looks inviting, or for any other time when I might be able to take a short quick walk. Great way to get in some more exercise, whether it's 10 minutes or half an hour.

    Cool idea! I pass a park on my way home and really should take advantage of a quick, brisk walk.

    great idea. I used to keep an extra pair of shoes under my desk and would take a 15 minute fast walk in the morning and afternoon for a quick break and stress reducer. Really worked
VAINVT 9/25/2013 8:27:00 AM

    Nice idea. I usually walk to a destination (like a show, a class, etc.), but this gives more opportunities...

    your comment sounds and seems great but i would hesitate to go walking alone in any park ot trail for however long unless i had a partner with me. i would err on the side of caution.
