- Get inspired.
- Lay your running/walking outfit next to your bed the night before. Treat your walk/run time like you would treat an important appointment.
- Have your unique goals- It’s crucial. Giving walking/running a purpose: whether it’s for losing weight, relieving stress, balancing your mind, or if it’s a prayer walk. Make them more valuable than walking aimlessly. Goals keep you consistent.
- Buy the right walking/running shoes- Go to specialty training shops they will gear you up.
- Strength training and stretching are key to strong pain free walks/runs; squats, lunges, glute. Bridge and planks are great for strengthening your legs and core muscles groups that help you with fitness. Do these at home or gym when you are not doing the Notes of Nature walk.
- Nutrients are also important (carbs, proteins, fibre and iron), they give you energy and build your muscles.
