went for an early walk today as it is forecast to be HOT today - high 30's maybe in to the 40's. So I got up at 7am on a Sunday (how rude) and wnt for my walk round the waterworks, 8500ish steps. I also included a bit of jogging on the downhill/flat bits.

when you are increasing the intensity of a walk, should you make it so that you are puffing harder (eg week 1 you are doing it easy, week 2 you are puffing, week 3 can't carry on a conversation etc) or should you be increasing it each week as you get fitter to maintain the same level of puffingness (eg week 1 you can walk at 2 kph and carry on a conversation, week 2 you can do the same, but at 5kph)??

I'm finding it difficult to maintain my heart rate etc when walking on the flat or downhill. Hills are fine, but I'm nearly needing to jog to keep my heart rate up on downhills and flat but don't want to because I don't want to place too much stress on my knees and ankles. Suggestions?
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

I hate it when it is so hot. Wasn't able to do anything until 9pm.

10 min walk
stepups with 5kg dumbells
bench press 5kg dumbells
chess press
lateral pulldown
tricep pulldown
weighted bench press
leg curls
Total: 45 mins

As far as the walking pace goes, I always walk as fast as I can, you obviously can't walk as fast up hills. I think if you find you are getting fitter, start walking a little further each day.
