Avoid Heat Stroke

Walkers: exercise indoors in inclement weather

If you are a walker, but it is too cold, icey, pouring rain, or even too hot to walk outside,10-15 minutes walking up and down stairs is about equal to a 30 minute walk on level ground. Always walk down the stairs at a normal pace, one step at a time. (Most stair accidents happen on the way down.)

Get moving & keep moving!

I love the burst of energy that I get after working out! I have "Walk Away the Pounds" (Leslie Sansone), PodRunner Intervals, and 5K101.com. I have no excuse to NOT get my workouut in. Rain, sleet, snow, extreme heat.... bring it on! I have my tools for a sustainable indoor and outdoor workout plan.
