How to prepare for the London Winter Wander
- Walk for 30 minutes every day. And if you can’t quite manage 30, every little helps!
Regular walking has been proven to increase cardiovascular fitness and reduce the risk of heart disease.
- Next time take the stairs!
It’s easier than you think to build walking into your everyday life. Take the stairs, or walk to the shops, even get off the bus one stop early and walk home.
- Warm up and cool down
Start slowly, and gently pick up speed. After, don’t forget to stretch, particularly your calves and thighs.
- Join a walking club
