WHAT TO DO

Warm up at an easy pace for 5 to 10 min­utes. Walk up the hill fast enough to feel that you’re breath­ing a bit more heav­ily, then back down; fol­low with 2 min­utes of brisk 4-mph walk­ing on a level sur­face. Re­peat the hill walk­ing and level walk­ing un­til you’re at the 25-minute mark. Fin­ish with 5 min­utes of easy walk­ing to cool down.
