WIO Double Dare Challenge

Friday, June 08, 2012

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!

Here’s the article link if you are interested:

    That sounds like a lot of fun. :-) From what i understand, little changes here and there keep the exercise fresh and fun, and also challenges your body so that it doesn't get used to a routine and plateau as a result. :-)

    I walk sideways on the treadmill sometimes. It is suppose to be good for the thighs and backside. emoticon

    I don't blame you for not trying the change directions things outside. I think I am going to try that out the next time I do a treadmill workout. It think it will really pump up the workout!
