In the fall of 2014, I decided to go for a walk with a friend after a long day at work. This walk turned out to be a blessing in disguise in my life – to walk on the path towards a fitter me. After walking for about 15 minutes may be, I was huffing and puffing. Emphasis to be placed on ‘walking’. All I did was walking up some mildly elevated roads. No running whatsoever. That’s when my thought process was triggered. “If I am huffing at age 24, how am I going to be when I am 64“. That one day changed my life, or at least it was the beginning of my attempts to change my life. And that friend, was this fit gal called ‘Komal Sampat‘ who was also, this adorable friend who didn’t laugh at me or make me feel any less of me during my “huffing” phase. With her I ran my first ever 5k and she did give me loads of tips on running. After all, I didn’t even know that 5k stood for 5 kilometers. Wondering what the ‘after’ part of this story is? This screenshot from 4 days back says it all.
The walk on that fine fall day changed my life and today I wish to share that joy with you. I believe the best way and probably, the easiest way for anyone to begin their fitness journey is to walk.
Today, Ponder ‘N’ Wonder is hosting it’s first ever fitness event titled – “Walk It Out“, a 30-day walking streak.
