Walking Challenges

First Step

The first thing you need to do is to ensure that you have everything you need to begin this walking adventure. The right pair of shoes is critical when you are starting an exercise regimen. When picking the right shoes make sure they are designed for walking or running. These shoes have been engineered to absorb impact, support your ankles and the arch of the foot better. The fit is another important aspect of choosing the right shoe. Most people I know usually purchase a shoe from a brand they trust or know. I recommend doing some research first to get the best shoe for you and then having your foot measured at a store to get the most accurate fit. As we gain and lose weight, our feet may get wider or slimmer as a result. Having the right shoes on will drastically improve the distance you can walk and the fatigue you feel afterward. Some specialty shoes will help to improve your posture and reduce lower back pain while walking or standing. So do your research and pick a great pair of shoes.

Balancing Act

Whether you need help from a partner in crime, cane, walker, skateboard, (just kidding), Bicycle, (not kidding) πŸ™‚ make sure you are safe before you start walking and moving around. Make sure that you have what you need to keep your balance. Even if you’re moving slowly, you’re moving more than you were yesterday and tomorrow looks awesome! Keep your balance; this is imperative to getting moving and to keep you moving. The more you walk, the better you will feel and the longer you will be able to go, but it all starts with a few steps.
