Anything that gets our heart to pumping and blood moving...yep. Sounds good to me.

I got in 60 minutes at the gym which consisted of a 30 minute treadmill , and some doing some light weights....emphasis on LIGHT weights.

13 minute walk, coffee break, 60 minutes cleaning in the office, worked, walked home for lunch and back to the office, 30 minutes at the farm and more walking. Guess this is what they were talking about.

Day 23

Break It Up

Short on time? Don't make excuses--you can still work out! Try splitting up your walk into small bursts instead of one longer workout; you'll still get the fitness benefits while managing your time in a way that works for you. Incorporate this technique to spread out your 35-minute walk today!

Yes, treadmills are boring but do make a difference. I walked this morning in the light snow before cleaning house so we could listen to DS's concert today. Logged my 5 miles but barely.

I am starting to see move steps as I now am working at our store front. Got in some time on my treadmill. That is the bulk of my steps so far. Put in 3 miles. It sure seems longer walking on a treadmill (an boring) . I can't wait to start talking my walks outside.

Everyone...have a healthy and fun weekend.

Make Time Fly

Varying up the speed and intensity of your walk can make your workout fly by! Try the intermediate interval walking workout in the link below instead of your usual 30-minute walk today. It's a good one!

I did get in a 30 minute walk today at the Mall with my Aunt and a girlfriend. It was fun! Also did some free weights this morning. I left my tracker at home on my other tennys but oh well. Its all good. I don't need numbers to show me what I did today.

Pile on the Miles

Did you know: Taking just 2,000 to 4,000 steps per day (that's about 1 to 2 miles) can earn you a modest weight loss of about five pounds per year! Your challenge for today (on top of walking for 30 minutes) is to accumulate 2,000 extra steps (or 1 extra mile) during your daily activities today. You can do it!

Strength Session #5

It's time for our 5th strength day! We're really upping the ante today, but we know you can handle it. Instead of just 1 set of 12, go through 2 sets of 10 reps for each of the exercises in the link below. And don't forget your 30 minutes of walking!

I am getting in my walks on a treadmill at Snap fitness in town. Getting in lots of steps setting up our new venture in town too. :) Still need to incorporate more free weights into my goals.

Welcome to Week 3!

Congratulations on making it to Week 3 of the #VionicWalkabout Challenge! This week, we're tacking on 10 more minutes to your daily walking time. Aim to walk for 30 minutes every day this week! Walking goes by faster with a soundtrack, so today's challenge is to create a playlist to listen to on your walk. Or, pick out a podcast or radio show to listen to for some brain food.

Sorry there was no update yesterday but it got really hectic here and I could not find ME time on the computer. That will not happen again. I WILL find ME time.

Got my walk in on the treadmill but did not get in the strength exercises. I forgot to wear my Spark Activity tracker so I don't know how much activity I got all day but...its all good.

I got my 20 minute walk in at the gym this morning and again got on the Elliptical, for a whole two minutes. That is all I could do but...it is a start.

I did concentrate on my stance, and will do some strength training this afternoon on my break. Everyone have a healthy day.

Find the Right Shoe for You....Day 9

Wearing the wrong walking shoes can set you up for foot, ankle and back pain--or even more serious injuries. For your walks, choose a comfortable, stabilizing shoe (like the Vionic Zen Walker with Orthaheel Technology). On top of your 20 minutes of walking today, check out the link below to find out which workout shoe is the best fit for you!

This is an excellent article on buying shoes that fit properly.

I vary my speed when the conditions allow and I walk everywhere during the day. I seldom dive my car unless I have to. The tracker may pick up other activity if I use weights but I seldom have them with me. I do jog in place too.

Wow, you must walk fast to cover that much ground or do you jog. Do you wear your activity tracker all day. I want to be YOU when I grow up.

I have been getting in my 10 min walks every day. In fact...up to 15 minutes now and increased the speed a little. :) I did start doing those strength exercises too. I was surprised that they were harder then I thought they would be. Been watching my feet as I walk and concentrating on FEELING the steps as I take them. I still feel wobbly on a treadmill. My belt kind of sticks and stalls once in awhile and it catches me by surprise.

Another 7+ miles. I usually take 2 short walks in the morning and never less than 10 minutes. I try to do the first walk outside before coffee and then the second longer walk before I open the office. I always try to do ST at some point in the day. I have had to start wearing my ankle brace since working at DS's house as the stairs are very steep and lugging boxes and bags down is a bit too much.

I am kind of liking this Activity tracker. :) I am still not using it yet this week for exercise walks but just to see how many steps I take around the house. Next week, I am going to start wearing it all day.

Dial It Up a Notch...Day 5

Fact: The actual speed you walk doesn't matter as much as your intensity does. If you can comfortably answer a question during exercise while still feeling like you’re exerting yourself, you’re usually working at the right intensity. Learn more about calculating and measuring exercise intensity in the link below--and then pay attention to your intensity during your 10-minute walk today!

Some days are just like that Vicki. Life happens and some things just have to take a back seat. Tomorrow is a new day and that can offer another chance to do your walk. Don't look back at what you didn't do, just look ahead and what you can do for that day.

I ordered the RYKA Women's Sport Walker 6 Walking Shoe. Couldn't remember the actual specific one I got 3 yrs. ago but knew they were a walking shoe by RYKA. A friend told me that RYKA is an excellent shoe and I found that to be true for me. I have had toe surgeries so it's important to have a nice size toe box. These do.

8 Strength Training Moves for Walkers

Strength Session #1

Strength training exercises are important for walkers since they help create greater muscle balance, flexibility and range of motion. Twice a week, we'll be challenging you to a strength routine to help you become a stronger, more efficient walker. On top of your 10 minutes of walking today, do 1 set of 10 repetitions of each of the moves in the link above.

I really need a new pair also. Who did you order from? I have such a hard time getting shoes that fit. What brand do you like?

Today, I got in my treadmill walk, and did about 15 minutes of free-weights. Tomorrow , checking out a gym.

I just ordered some new walking shoes this morning. Excited to get them and hope they feel good on my feet. I haven't purchased a new pair of walking athletic shoes since 2011. Yikes. Had no idea I had been wearing them that long. Great article about injuries while walking or running.
