(I’ve decided to do these updates once a week.)
I was out of the country last week, but took my running and walking gear with me. I only did one “run”, but I got in a ton of fast walking. I’m only counting miles where I went walking. Days where I walked only as a part of my normal routine aren’t counted.
One of the things I love about some European cities is how walkable they are. The distances I walk in them surprise me when I map where I went and what I did. It’s easy to walk five miles in New York or Stockholm without thinking about it. Part of that may be the mixed use nature of most of the neighborhoods: every block has something slightly different going on.
Also, shops. I find it easier to bicycle 100 km down the Pinellas County barrier islands with shops, apartments, hotels, and the Gulf to look at than riding a featureless flat road. Walking seems to be similar: it’s easier to walk in places with interesting architecture and other things to look at than to walk through residential area after residential area.
