This winter has been particularly cold, but I still want to get in my "power walks" - walking at 3.0 - 3.4 miles per hour (128-130 beats per minute) - so I have identified an open walking area "track" that is about about 40 feet long, from my living room to my den. So I pop in the iPod with my favorite walking music and walk for 20-30 minutes at a time. I can even do this while the rest of the house is still sleeping in the early morning.

Get out and walk outdoor daily, so as to enjoy the fresh air and deep breathing. You don't only have to walk indoor and at the gym. You sure would enjoy walking in the park and at the track, you will also see and meet many people. 311342
In the winter months it is hard to walk after work. One of my goals is to walk 5 miles per week. To solve this I walk during my lunch break. I either drive to the local fast food joint, park my car and walk around the block. If the weather is bad I drive to the indoor mall and do a lap around the mall. Each walk takes about 18 minutes. 311
