Tonight's walk: 24,009 steps, 241 minutes, 1825 calories burned, 11.02 miles walked (times 1.15 = 12.67 miles really walked).

Oh, and 20 staircases done.

The route I've settled into is arduous enough to make me sweat and to keep my heart rate up, at least as I'm heading away from the Han River. I don't do any stairs on the way back—yet—so I don't sweat nearly as much during the return leg. Maybe, at some point, I'll double up and do 40 staircases instead of 20... but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

Sweating can be an issue. On my lunchtime walks I'm going to have to change out of my work shirt. After my walk home yesterday, my light colored slacks had a large wet spot at the base of my ass. I'm sure anyone walking behind me must have thought I'd had a massive shart. Not sure what I'm going to do about that. Other than not think about it.

Sumo diapers?

I have the same problem, but in my case, the sweat is so extensive that my entire ass, not just the crack, ends up looking drenched. My aesthetic solution is to tie a dark, patterned shirt (usually plaid) around my waist for daytime hiking, but I do nothing for nighttime hikes. I sweat, and that's not going to change even if I were to lose a lot of weight. I just have to learn to own it.
