‘Kayso, I go on a 2-1/2 mile “Power Walk” 6 days a week. In addition to a half-dozen hills I navigate, I add to my cardiac/weight-burning load by strapping on 1# gloves. (Five of the six days I follow-up my Power Walk with a session of weight-training, tummy-tightening, butt-lifting, and stretching which amounts to about 30 minutes.)
This morning I took photos of five of these six hills.
It takes me 40 minutes from start to finish. This morning I added another 1/4 mile, for a total of 45 minutes of fat-burning activity. (The trick is to walk at a good enough clip so you can talk but not SING – and not slowing down when traversing the inclines. That’ll get your heart-rate going and KEEP it going until the next incline…)
During my walks, I meet many neighborhood animals – including two less-than-pleasant encounters with dogs. Unleashed, unfenced-in dogs. (Fortunately, none of us sustained injuries.) But after the second confrontation I started leaving the house earlier and at the same time, so as to establish a routine that both canines and canine-owners would get accustomed to.
Only 1/4 mile more…
