Walking can is great extercise. And although jogging is great interval training, I also use hills too. I try to do both but not at the same time. For running I have to use a treadmill simply because I can pace myself. For hills I use both a treadmill and hills outside.
The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.
Walking is the best exercise you can do as it covers your large muscles and carrying weights will count as resistance, especially if you add a little movement into those arms as you stride..what may also help a lot would be to incorporate some intervals in that walk..something as simple as a fast jog every few minutes which will speed up your heart and count as cardio and circuit training.. when it comes to exercise variety makes all the difference in the world!!:O)
Ok so i have found time to exercise (cardio) by walking for 30 minutes out of my 60 minute lunch at works (thanks for that). I have also heard that i need to incorporate some circuit training or other exercise in my life that includes resistance training. I can honestly say i don't have time for that. Would it help if i carried some weights with me while i walked. Would that cover both bases. does it help with weight loss or just "even things out" (like body bumps :)
