Take an Hour.…Take the Hill.
No…this post is not about politics, but about YOU and what you could be doing to benefit yourself. I’m not going to make any assumptions about what you do to take care of yourself already, I’m just going to share with you what I am currently doing to take care of myself…and it involves taking an hour out of the day, and taking a hill.
As an additional component to my workout I have been taking an hour out of my day (usually right after my cardio/strength training) and using that hour to walk up and down one of the steepest hills in my neighborhood. Walking for an hour is great…walking for an hour up and down a hill is…tremendous (work).
Let me now advise caution for anyone thinking of doing what I do in the way I do it as I admit, I do take risks…but that is a personal choice I make to get the most out of the effort I am putting in (and it’s certainly paying off). Maybe take a hill that is not so steep…and walk it later in the evening when it’s cooler. In short, do it in a way that is most comfortable for you and in a way that is in-line with your fitness goals.
