You could add light (1 pound) handweights to your outdoor walk. That will up the intensity a little. You could also put the weight (whatever you think is appropriate without overloading) in a bookbag and carry it.
Since I've recommitted to getting fit, I've been using the treadmill at the gym. Normally, I prefer to walk outside, but during the winter it's too hard to get my walk in before it gets dark. Anyway, this weekend I took the opportunity to get outside to walk during the day. I know for a fact that I walked further and faster than I ever do on the treadmill, but the workout didn't seem as intense as the workouts I've been doing on the treadmill. Anyone else have that experience? It worries me because I'm not ready to run, yet, but I do want to be able to do my exercise outdoors without sacrificing intensity. Ideas?
