As most of you know, I have recently started walking every morning. I had several reasons for making this decision. The primary one was my health. I want to become healthier and live a new and improved lifestyle.
My concern is injury. With so many factors to consider I had many questions about how much, how often, what shoes to wear, what time of the day to walk and so on and so on. That is when I decided to do some research, I thought I might share what I discovered:
HOW TO START WALKING
1.Start out slow and easy. What I mean is start off with slow, short sessions and build your way up
2.Be sure to drink plenty of water before, during, and after walking.
3.Watch your posture. Walk tall.
WHAT WALKING SHOE IS BEST FOR ME?
HOW MANY CALORIES ARE BURNED WALKING ONE MILE?
This will vary depending on the individual and the speed walked. An average is appx. 100 calories per mile.
WHAT IS A GOOD WALKING PACE?
An average fitness walking pace is close to a 15 minute mile. But, a good pace will vary depending on your fitness level and your walking technique.
Remember these are just some suggestions that are working for me and I am sharing them hoping that they may also be beneficial for you as you take that next step into WALKING FOR YOUR HEALTH.
If you have any health concerns or medical conditions, be sure to check with your doctor for advice before you begin any routine.
God Bless you all.
