Do you enjoy walking?

Do you find you always park as close as possible to where you are going, so you don't have to walk as far?

I usually go the the closest spot -in fact today I went with a friend to have a coffee and tried to get her to park right outside.

I don't really know why as I walk every morning with my dogs for about 45 minutes, but I think I do not like walking in between cars at shopping centres.

Also today it was raining and I got wet as she parked down the road!

I have always been a very enthusiastic walker from childhood! I never had a bike and wpould walk everywhere:to school,to the shops,to the beach,to the station to catch my train from the end of the line to the city,then I'd walk from the city station to my place of work!
When I came to Townsville,the walking became even more enjoyable as the weather is so great! There are no trains here and a poor bus service so I walked to work and home again for many years,until I had to stop working thanks to my poly-arthritic disease becoming so severe! Now I walk with a beautifully hand-carved oak walking stick which was made especially for me. I miss my long walks almost more than anything else.My friends always park as close to the shops as possible when taking me to get my groceries which is VERY thoughtful of them. The furthest I can walk now without my cane is to my letterbox!! This is a dreadful situation for someone whose passion for walking is still so strong,but whose ability has diminished so much!! But the good news is that I CAN still walk even these amounts!!
I have had three very scary times in my life walking, so no I hate walking on the streets.
I also have a fear of dogs on the street.
So I have to drive as close as possible....to where I want to go.
Oh man, jonaj. Did I ever tell you about the time one of my elderly neighbours used me as a human shield? She's afraid of dogs, but, heck, so am I! LOL. Luckily, we were both fine. Scary dog though.

poor old thing, I love dogs...but!

Usually I prefer to walk because it stretches my legs and gives me exercise. If I'm tired or in a bad mood, then I might want to be dropped off as close as possible.
I love walking and try and walk to most places. However if I do take the car I always try and park as close as possible to where I am going

I usually park as close as possible to where I am going. Usually have decent shoes on etc., whereas I walk most days from home in joggers and walking gear so that is walking to me!

It depends. I do enjoy walking, but if it is raining or baby is grizzly, then I park closer to the shop. I swear, if my mum could park in the actual shop she would. She hates the walk!
by Vee
that sounds a bit like me but there is no rhyme or reason to it -no idea why I do it....actually yes, perhaps I have now that i think of it -when i first had an accident and was not allowed to lift and could not walk far -p;erhaps I got used to it!! good excuse.
by Finy
That it is, Finy.

Before I had kids I used to park as far away as possible - mostly because I suck at parking and felt safer when I wasn't surrounded by cars LOL Now that I have 2 toddlers I park either close to the entrance or close to a trolley bay, so I can just grab a trolley to put the children straight into.
lizzi -you have a "legitimate" excuse!
by Finy
That would depend on the time of day and the neighbourhood. Walking however is my first preference.
I try to park as close as possible to where I have to go! :)
I'm afraid I go for the closest park. Not a big fan of walking, unless it's on the beach, then I love it.
Unless in a hurry, I am happy to park further away where a parking space is more likely available, and I need the exercise as well.
As close as possible due leg & shoulder injuries'!
I do enjoy walking, but some times I have to be honest and am slack so I drive closer to certain things it depends on how I feel at the time!
When we shop in the odd occasion in our local suburb, we park where ever we can find a space with the right time limit on it for what we need to do there. At our local Westfields we park in the parking station & walk. In Melbourne we don't have a car, so we do a 10/15 minute walk to the station & back, every day we go out from/to the house.
