When we walked out after coffee, I looked over at Lily and said, "Lily, how would you feel about skipping the walk with the ladies and head over to the Bellis Fair Mall Walk? They open the doors at 7:00am." She agreed, and with that we drove the short distance to the mall and made four laps, cutting no corners. The link says each one is close to a mile, but my step counter gave us .6 miles for each lap. Not bad.
Afterwards, we went back to the starting point of the intended walk, near the Farmers' Market (which is holding its last winter market today) and there were several of the women. They had changed their route enough that I could probably have done it today (no hills). My hip isn't 100% yet and I sort of overdid it on Thursday but it's WAY better. Anyway, we made a great choice for us today; it's dry inside the mall!
