Is this too far to walk??

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I am thinking of walking to the grocery store, which also has a Tim Hortons where I could grab lunch...

It is 0.75 miles away....OR 1.2 kms...

Do you think thats walkable? I have no idea...

Yes it is! I usually have to do those walks, it will take about 15 - 20 mins Depends how fast you walk though

Definitely walkable in good weather- however, if it's snowing or chilly outside- be sure to bundle up. Also- take some Pepper Spray and your cell phone with you just to be on the safe side since you're walking by yourself.

I'd walk- you are doing the environment a favour by not driving and you'll be keeping fit

Sure it is. The best is you can buy something you feel guilty about eating, and walk off the difference in calories

I'll put it this way- i live in Memphis- it is one of the most dangerous cities in the US. I never walk anywhere around here ( i don't want to get shot or raped) I always drive and always have my cell phone and other things with me just to be on the safe side. There has been several shootings in the past month not even a street over from my duplex. This is precisely why I stay with my boyfriend Colin now in Bartlett,TN (right outside of memphis). I really wasn't planning on living with him before we're married....but it's much safer. I'm thinking about moving my girls in with us too soon. (my mom has them at our duplex for now just to be safe). It's a lot safer in Bartlett and he's a cop. I don't feel safe in my own neighborhood at home...it's rediculious. There are tons of hispanic gangs around now and crime everywhere So it pays to be street smart. I'm always big on personal safety and being alert if i have to walk anywhere or go out in public. Hence pepper spray and my cell

I walk up to three miles a day (no store in sight!!) IF you think you are going to buy stuff I would take a backpack along!! Way back when in college I had no car (or much money) and would either walk to ride by bike to the grocery store and only buy what I could carry in my backpack.

That's definitely walkable. We generally won't use the car for distances under 6 - 10 km (roughly 4 - 6 miles), unless we have to transport something heavy (like our cat in his carrier).

Definitely walkable (you probably walk more IN the gym ), but it is a little chilly out there so bundle up.

I just got home..it only took 10 minutes to walk that far..and it was perfect because I needed some cardio, and I burned rubber I was walkin so fast..

I felt like a student walking with my backpack, I was actually laughing as I walked...then in the grocery store, I kept my mp3 player on..it is so interesting to grocery shop to music..I loved it!!

Good time, I'm glad I walked!!

You need to do it every day then, I enjoy my walking, I feel better and it seems like I sleep better too.

Of course it is! I used to easily walk 10+ miles a day for fun when I lived in big cities.

Definitely not too far...most of my walks (with my dogs) are about 2-3 miles on average. Sometimes more but since we usually go out late we usually can't go much more or we will get back after midnight...walking takes longer when you have two curious dogs with you!

I knew you could. Silly girl... you are young and athletic, should be no problem.

That's definitely walkable. The pet food store I shop at is 4 miles (2 miles there, 2 miles back), which is about as long as I can bear to walk, lol. The way I've figured it, it takes an hour to walk 2 miles, 2 hours to walk 4 miles. If you're wondering, lol

Oddly, I've thought of that before....I'd either use my nose or bite a pencil and use that! (Gotta be prepared for the unexpected ya know!)

Or you could take the shopping cart back home with you.

People did it all the time when I was in college. They were parked in the apartment complex I lived in all the time.

The shopping carts here all have locking wheels that prevent the cart from moving if its taken out of the parking lot. I wanted to bring it home and them bring the cart back, but you can't physically do it.

Sad that they actually had to invent a shopping cart that couldn't leave the store.

Wow...haven't seen that yet. Maybe I'm not at the right stores. I know that there are some stores that require the $1 deposit if you want a shopping cart.

Well, this store's in a neighborhood where anything not nailed down and gets left outside is stolen. There are a lot of homeless people here and they would steal all the carts, plus people would take them home and never bring them back.

I still am wondering how they work. The wheels work just fine and the cart looks totally normal, but if you try to take it even and inch out of the parking lot on the sidewalk the wheels lock and it won't move anymore.
