Aaaargh, walking! Something we do every day without a thought. So why is walking fast, or at least attempting to walk fast, so damn frustrating?! Last week I thought I had it all figured out and I even managed a PB of a sub 9min/km pace. This week I have been all over the place with pace, walking form and times. My times have been really quite slow, even for me, and while for one of my walks I can say I was focusing on form not pace, other walks were meant to be done at a brisk pace. Sheesh! Running is so much easier….if I could do it.
Taking yesterday off from any form of exercise did wonders. I felt so much better when I woke this morning. I managed a 6km walk before breakfast, followed up with a circuit including push ups, prone and side planks, double crunches, medicine ball crunches, side taps and other ab exercises.
