Take it outside…

trailI encourage my clients to walk outside as much as possible, not only is it great exercise but it’s wonderful for mental reasons as well.

Walk trails, walk hills, walk the neighborhood it’s a great way to move your body.

Here’s what to do this week:

Next time instead of walking at a steady state try intervals instead. Set your watch for six minutes and every 30 seconds walk as fast as possible, then walk at a normal pace for 30 seconds. This is a 1:1 work/rest ratio. Try to build up to 10 minutes but no more than 10. If it feels like you can go for longer periods of time it means you aren’t working hard enough. Try it twice a week. Give it a shot!
