Ok, so I have been doing about 2 miles of aerobic walking a day and an additional 3 miles just booking around the job. Getting my recommended 10,000 steps a day in. But the 2 miles is getting "easy" so I have been trying to figure out what is going to kick it in gear for me and not kill me. I can't seem to find an "attractive" route around work that will allow me to expand the length of my walk and I don't want to double up on the same route...BORING!! Fastest way to convince me not to do that again!
So I went to MapMyWalk and set a course around the neighborhood. I set a 3 mile course that I know will be uphill in the beginning, but mostly downhill on the return side and I think I can do it in an hour or less. I have changed my work hours some, so I can get an early enough start to walk first in the morning then come home and get showered and ready to go in. Wish me luck at least for these first few days. I have a feeling I am going to need it.
At least I will be walking in the dark so I don't scare the neighbors!
