My WIO team double dare challenge is to read the article, ‘14 Ways to Add Variety to Your Walks’, try 3 ways and post a blog about it.
These are the ones I used on my 3 mile walk this evening:
Add an incline -- I did that and walked up and down the church steps several times.
Change your stride -- I loaded my ‘Dance’ play list on the MP3 player. It is the one I use when I want to walk faster and also do a little running. I had not been doing that lately.
Change direction -- My plan was to change right turns to left and vise versa on my route, but it meant to walk backwards and sideways. I didn’t want to do that outside, so instead …
Vary your program -- I did a drastically different route than my regular ones and when I didn’t think there was anyone to see me, I did do the backwards / sideways thing, but that’s one I will probably only use inside.
Walking never bores me - I love it!
