You Walk To Stay Healthy…

But You Don’t Do It Fast Enough

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Short Story By Gabrielle Mullarkey -

If walk­ing is your main form of ex­er­cise, you need to pick up the pace to get heart-health ben­e­fits. If you can sing a song with­out dif­fi­culty while walk­ing, you’re not work­ing hard enough – it means there’s spare air in your lungs which you could use to walk faster. Aim to walk a mile in 12 to 15 min­utes. If you can’t main­tain this speed at first, try ‘in­ter­val train­ing’. This is where you walk at your nor­mal pace for two min­utes, then speed-walk for 30 sec­onds. Keep re­peat­ing the pat­tern.
