Fitness Challenge #2 - Walking

This is our second week of challenges on Fitness Towards Healthiness.

Like I stated with last week's challenge, we will start off slowly and build our way up each week.

We will build up from last week's challenge and add an extra 5 minutes to your walk and an additional quarter mile distance the first two days. The third day will remain the same. I do recommend that you purchase a pedometer. Many are very low priced. You don't need anything fancy. A pedometer that measures the mileage and the time is sufficient. You can find pedometers online or at your local Walmart or Target if you don't have a sports store in your area.

Here is this week's challenge:

Walk x1 per day for 3 days this week:

1. Day 1 - Walk for 25 minutes, goal is 1 1/4 mile minimum

2. Day 2 - Walk for 30 minutes - goal is 1 1/2 mile

3. Day 3 - Walk for 30 minutes - goal is 1 1/2 mile

If you are unable to walk the specified distance, it's okay. but please try to walk the amount of time specified.

If you have health or physical restrictions/limitations, please consult your doctor before attempting any exercise regimen.

As in any challenge, if you want to extend yourself further than what is stated in the challenge, please feel free to do so. You may walk farther or longer . . .the goal is to get off of your chair and get going!!

Together we can accomplish our fitness goals if we stick it out and support one another.

Please let us know how you did with this challenge at the end of the week, we would love to hear that you accomplished this challenge!

Hope you'll join the challenge!!!
