Go for a Long Walk in the Great Outdoors

Long-distance walking is so much more than hiking.

While you might think long-distance walking is just another name for hiking, it’s so much more than that. The trend started in 1963 when then-attorney general Robert F. Kennedy walked 50 miles from Washington, DC, to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, reportedly only wearing his Oxfords. Today, plenty of people take the challenge to walk all the way across the United States.

When your usual walk around the block or your weekend hike isn’t enough, channel your inner Forest Gump and go long! Make sure you have some sturdy, comfortable shoes (lots of long-distance walkers prefer running shoes) by getting fitted at a local running store where they can analyze your feet and gait. Then carve out time for a good warm up with plenty of dynamic stretches and let someone know where you’re going (safety first!).

I grew up on a farm. So I love the country and the great outdoors. Those long walks also helps you to clear your mind and destress. Follow my blog and comments are welcome. If you’re ready to get started, contact me or click on my link www.fitguy46personaltraining.com for your free consultation.
