Places I'm gonna travel from, to and explore....

Postby mandy_moo55 » Wed Jan 11, 2006 1:00 am

This has been an inspiration to me to get my behind moving and mentally travel all over the world by walking, cycling, skiing and swimming.

I'm going to find out distances from and to places and put them down here and keep notes on my daily progress.

How exciting!!! :P

Walking: High Incline, adjusting between slow, medium and fast walking pace. * See if treadmill has setting.

X-Trainer: Keep heart rate up and set to medium level.

Running: Work up to a fast jog/running pace.

Swimming: Try two different strokes each swim session. Do a minimum of 60 laps in 25m pool = 1500m (1.5km)

Cycling: Work out distace covered in each Spin class.
