You probably already know that I think walking is an awesome exercise (find out why here). Seriously, it’s the best! Walking should be pretty easy for you to do over the holiday period (you can even make it social!) so I challenge you to complete this 30 day walking challenge. There are two challenges for either the beginner / intermediate, and advanced.
How To Complete The Challenge
For this challenge, you will either need a pedometer (to count your steps), or carry your phone with you wherever you go. The iPhone has a Health app that calculates your steps. If you don’t have an iPhone, download one of the free apps such as Runkeeper or Map My Walk to track your steps.
Every morning, you must start your day with a 30-minute (or longer) walk. It will make you feel more refreshed and will also help you make better food choices throughout the day. It is not difficult to set your alarm 30 minutes earlier to fit this in.
You must then find time throughout the rest of the day to fit in the required amount of steps. This can be by walking around the office every hour, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, walking to work or walking to the train station, going for a walk in your lunch break, etc etc.
Beginner / Intermediate Challenge
|Day||Total Daily Steps|
For the advanced walkers, your challenge is to walk 10,000 steps every single day for 30 days. Are you up for it?!
I would love to hear how your challenge results went! Xx
