This September and to kick off a big fat welcome to spring in Melbourne, I am going to walk for at least 30 minutes every single day outdoors, regardless of the weather or whatever is going on in my life. I’m making my commitment public to make myself more accountable. No fudging the truth, no excuses, no treadmills, only good, honest outdoor walking.
My broken toe seems to have healed enough and I’ve been doing some urban walking close to home to test my foot. I think I’m ready for my 30 day walking challenge.
Some days I might have to break it down into two 15-minute walks, three 10-minute walks or a 10-minute walk followed by a 20-minute walk later in the day.
There are no rules other than to walk for at least 30 minutes every day. I’m not doing this as part of an ‘official’ online challenge, the 10,000 step challenge, the 30 miles in September challenge or anything like that. I’m not doing it for weight loss, simply to improve my wellbeing to regain lost fitness and give myself the confidence to head for the hills again post-injury. I will celebrate my fitness gains with some hiking. Yay!
I’ll report back any interesting things I learn along the way.
Are you up for the 30-day walking challenge, too? It’d be fun to do this with others. Let me know in the comments below.
