Is it weird to go on massive walks for no reason? Like putting on a podcast and seeing how far it is possible can go in one direction tired, before coming back on the metro…. Is this strange?

  1. No I’ve done those walks. They are soothing and you get a lot of tension worked out. I never worried that it was weird to do that. Who cares what people think?

  2. Been doing walks like that for 40 years. Still do when I have time (which is not so often these days). Keeps you fit, leads to occasional adventures, and is a great way to get familiar with the area around where you live.

  3. weird is subjective, being normal and doing things everyone is doing sounds boring.

    so just be weird and you do you my man. i listen to podcasts and drive trucks in a game called euro truck simulator, andi love it.

    people think im weird for buying expensive racing wheels while not being into racing game but its my money and my decisions what i wanna do so call me weird all you want. idgaf

  4. I’m British so no. This would be a normal day for me a few years ago.

    Walk 4 miles to get my son to school. Chill at my mum’s or do shopping then walk 4 miles back. It was always fun finding new routes to get there.

    A normal weekend is my family picking a direction and walking around finding new routes or cool stuff.

    In summary:. Go adventuring fellow human. Just make sure to do it safely. We don’t want you getting hurt.

  5. I do this all the time, especially in the summer. When there’s a 38 C heatwave, I pop in my headphones and walk 10 kilometers. It’s harder to motivate myself to do it in the winter because it’s often wet and I hate putting on all those clothes. I am very minimalistic with clothing and I can only be motivated to dress warmly when I know I’ll be out for awhile. If I’m just taking out the garbage I will walk out of the house in gym shorts and flip flops in below freezing weather.

  6. I think it just means you might be bored, but it’s better than sitting around listening to the podcast.

    I actually like going on walks with no headphones, taking in surroundings. Found the kind of music I used to listen to on em was incongruous (yeah I’m a gangster, taking a stroll lol) and got me unnecessarily amped. Podcasts are better for being calming though.

  7. I don’t think this is weird personaly because sometimes I, myself go for a long walk listening to something which helps clear my mind and forget the daily struggles

  8. It’s walking we do it all day every day (depending on what kind of person you are) don’t think its weird I mean it’s good for your body and mental health so absolutely no chance

  9. This is literally all I did for the pandemic.

    I moved to a new city and didn’t know anyone. Used to hate audiobooks because I always got distracted and missed huge chunks but started downloading them from my library on Libby and have made it through most of that list of “books I should read eventually”.

    Also was great for catch up calls – id just call friends I hadn’t talked to in forever and have hours long walking phone calls.

    And honestly I don’t want to give those walks up now that we’re coming out of the worst of the pandemic (at least where I am)

    Actually in the winter I also used to get on the metro and just read on the train while riding it from end to end. Just felt like it had the right ambient noise level and fewer other distractions that I could just sit and read. And then pop out for a break and find some new shop or coffee shop or restaurant etc.
