Tips for Walkers

22 Jul

Choose the right gear–footwear being the most important, of course. Your shoes should have proper arch support, a firm heel and thick, flexible soles.

Check with your doctor, especially if you have health concerns.

Set realistic goals. For example, you may choose to walk 30 minutes a day, five days  week.

Warm up and cool down. Walk slowly for the first five minutes and for the last five minutes.

Stretch. After warming up, stretch your muscles before walking.

Track your progress. Keep a record of how many steps you take, the distance you walk and/or how long it takes.
