Two Mile Walk. Tuesday November 11, 2014

The other day I was sitting at my computer, it was raining outside and windy, I felt fat and lazy (tired, depressed, you name it I felt it in all its negativity).

Then I suddenly remembered a YouTube clip, which my son's American girlfriend had sent me a year or so ago when she knew, because of a broken wrist I was unable to run or do much exercise. She thought this would help. And it did.

So the other grey afternoon, I clicked on the link, cleared a small space in front of my computer and started to watch (then got up off my chair!). Just hearing the sound of the familiar music cheered me up and I hadn't even started the walk.

It's a 2 mile "walk" which you can do at home and it lasts 30 minutes.

The girl who walks through it with you is great and very motivational. You can imagine old, fat, young, tired (yup that's me), thin people doing just the same as you while you are walking. Well I do.

There is also a one mile and a three mile version so you could start with the 1 mile walk which lasts 15 minutes.

Honestly I can guarantee you will feel so good afterwards. I am so happy I have discovered Lesley again. For starters, just watch it and you'll see what I mean.

Fantastic idea
Many thanks for this
A great idea especially for winter days when the weather is too bad for outdoor walking

I think I love Lesley! No enthusiasm? She just lent us hers! Why not :-D
Thank you Julia, I feel armed.
Love from the room above the garage.

Thank you all for your comments. I expect everyone else was busy walking! Seriously thought, it was kind of you to comment as I know you are supporting me. x

Dearest Julia ~
Oooooooh! Just viewed your recommendation and I found myself rocking away with her spirit. Thank you, dear one, for your post and for giving us such a great lift.

I really would like to be positive about this, BUT I got a message from YouTube, that this video is not available any more due to copyright issues with the author. What a let down.

Julia Fri, Nov 14th 2014 @ 8:26am

Yes HansS sometimes this does happen but try again and also I think that there is more than one clip which you can click on. I'll try later today. I have been watching the video on and off for almost 2 years now and most times it's available. Thank you for alerting me to this, glad you want to try it and how frustrating not to be able to.

I think it is just not available any more. Period. No point trying. The author has just claimed back her copyright, because she wants to market it.
Sorry, but I think that's just the way it is.

Hi Hans S. I have just checked it and done the walk so it is still available.
I am sorry you are unable to access it. It works on both my computers, an Apple and Lenovo. Type in your google search.."2 mile walk YouTube" (rather than click on the blog links). Good luck.Julia

This is strange. I tried your original link twice and always got nowhere. But with the Google search it works.
Thanks and sorry for the confusion.

Julia Mon, Nov 17th 2014 @ 2:28pm

That's fine HansS. I am so very glad it worked for you.

Silvia A Tue, Nov 18th 2014 @ 3:48pm

Julia, this is a good idea I will adapt and apply. Thanks!
Hope you are doing well!

Julia Mon, Nov 24th 2014 @ 12:39pm

Hi Sylvia. Nice to see your name. I am fine thank you. Not too good and not too bad but average I would say!! It's raining here today and very grey outside. What's it like where you are and how are YOU doing? Thank you for mentioning me name the other day! Julia x
