Yes, YES and YES !
Most people and most trainers underestimate the power of walking.
The mentality out there is based in calories.
I base my work in quality and training longevity.
Most people can easily walk. It is a pleasant activity where people can include friends, kids, family members and so on.
You can start walking to the shops, to school, to university, to work. There are no limits here.
You could take it to the next level, start sending less emails and go walking to people’s desks if you work in an office. Trust me you will create better relations at work.
You could stop using lifts, escalators and walk instead.
In terms of footwear I would advise you get something that is comfortable. The most important thing after the shoes are socks. Get pure cotton ones. Socks that are made of plastic hold moisture and tend to promote blistering.
Don’t forget your sunscreen, hat and go for it.
In time you could challenge yourself and travel walking! Yes I am serious.
I once crossed the whole of Spain walking. It took me a month, it was bloody cheap and I can say that I know Spain like no one else does.
OK. Maybe not a walking holiday for you, maybe a weekend on the bush connecting with the wildlife. It is so beautiful and cheap and the health benefits are amazing!
So open your front door and walk today!
