How Long Should I Walk Everyday

You may have read that the recommended steps per day to walk is 10,000. In my getting fit at 50 with Woolx series here 10,000 steps a day is what I shoot for. That’s about 5 miles for the average person and takes about 1 1/2 hours at an easy pace. What if you just

Dreaming Of Warmer Days

I lay on a soft mat of warm meadow grass gazing up at a pastel blue sky and watch as  cotton ball clouds drift away over head, morphing and changing shape as the wind carries them gently away. I can feel the warm spring sunshine softly caressing my skin as I close my eyes and

The Long Goodbye

One of my favourite cooks in one of my favourite haunts here in upstate country shocked me several weeks ago.  What he said made my sizzling kebabs slip from my fingers. “I’m going,” he announced in his soft, delightfully accented Turkish voice.  “Going where?” I queried from my counter stool.  “Finished for tonight?” “No, all

Noises Off…trying to find a place of perfect solitude

Bang, slam, whump. Screech, clang, crunch. Man, we humans are a noisy bunch. Over the years it’s become more and more difficult to find a place of perfect solitude.  I keep a special place in my heart for David Thoreau, who saw the evils in industrialization already in the 19th century.  While Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am fortunate enough to live close to Two Rivers Recreation area  which is loaded with miles of trails and beautiful  scenery. A great area to hike or mountain bike and field test the latest Woolx products. Hike or mountain bike along the two old reservoirs that used to supply the Village of Waverly’s water

Getting Fit With Woolx…Week 2

Well I just finished week 2 of getting fit with Woolx and though the weather was all over the place I managed to do pretty good on my walking goals. I missed walking Monday Jan 6th due to a power outage and honestly I just blew off Wednesday and ate a half a pizza. You
