Walking in Winter
Walking is my favourite exercise. In addition to a great workout, it’s a fantastic way to get outdoors and enjoy fresh air and beautiful natural surroundings.
However this time of year, the air is just a little too fresh and the natural surroundings are a little too much like frozen hinterland.
So what’s a poor walker to do? There is the treadmill option. Or there is mall walking (see if you can find a mall that opens its doors to walkers before the stores open otherwise it is just too frustrating trying to walk around milling mall crowds).
If you work in a large office building, walk the long way around the floor to get your coffee or lunch. Take the stairs between floors instead of the elevator.
A good idea I heard was instead of sitting and watching tv, march in place while watching your favourite sitcom.
Try out any or all of these ideas and figure out which works best for you so you can stay in shape because walking season will be here before you know it.
