Walking and Swimming are Tiresome

Don't you think so? Well, as I have told you in my previous discussion, I went walking to the beach with my siblings and their children. We walked 1 1/2 hours to the beach we wanted. Actually the beach is only 10 minutes walk straight from my house but we went farther to where a talk of the town beach resort was located. We walked along the beach, then along the countryside as there was no more pathway for us along the beach. We passed through a remote village with coconuts, bananas, nipa plants, fish ponds and mangroves. The walk was easy as we have the end goal of a not visited beach yet. Well, we have not been to this beach until today. It was a long walk as the youngest of us was 10 years old but it was a worthy walk. When we arrived at our destination, we took a rest first, drunk our drinks and enjoyed the solemn sun rising of a new day. Btw, we didn't go inside the resort. We just made our picnic nearby, which was free. We started to swam in the fresh clear water of the sea. We enjoyed it. The children were playing and having fun. We swam and took our picnic every now and then. We stayed there for 3 hours and then walked one third of the way until we saw a tricycle and this brought us home tired and wet. I was so tired that I slept the whole afternoon. I was sure the rest of my companions were taking a nap too. I was also sure that my 10 and 11 years old nieces were fighting to take a nap and were watching TV in my house. I wonder if they can go to school tomorrow. My body is so sore from swimming. Maybe, theirs not. SO, how was your weekend?

That was quite a walk and it seems that you saw some very interesting things. You certainly got a lot of exercise.

Yes, it was indeed. Not always that is why I usually get sore from swimming. Thanks @JamesHxstatic

I find being tired from such things to be a great feeling :-)

Yes, it was a huge sea. We tried not to get very far from the beach as we are not a good swimmer @amadeo.

Oh yes, all that walking and swimming will tire a person out. A gray and rainy weekend here.

It sounds very tiring just reading about it. Wow, 1 1/2 hours to get there. I would just plop myself down wherever and take a long nap. I used to love to walk but then I think I hurt my foot or something and then I got out of the habit. Since I got my scooter I do not walk as much as I did before and I get tired very easily.

It was tiring indeed but I love walking not only because it is healthy but also I discover a lot of interesting beauty in the surrounding @Hannihar

@thelme55 Thelma, I understand that. I used to feel so much better when I could do a lot of walking. Now, there are times I can still walk and not have to stop and take a deep breath.

We have been getting wood ready for winter so we are now tired and sore too. Vince has been chain-sawing and myself, my BIL and SIL have been loading the sawn wood.

It is good to have a long walk. Swimming is a great form of exercise. Going out shortly as it is Mothers Day here.

You need to properly distribute the load on your body. It is better not to walk much and not swim a lot.

Sometimes we have to spend our day doing nothing. It is a kind of regaining our energy @rina110383

Yes, both burn high calories. And they are good for health.
