Are you sure?
I’ve ended up doing a lot of walking last year averaging around 5 ml a day last month. I head for a hill around three days a week. Usually around 500’ ascent and walk it briskly without stopping. Heart rate rises and leg muscles can burn feeling like a workout.
When I used to try the turbo I could never motivate myself to work hard enough to even break out into a sweat.
Yes, I am sure.
I walk between 2 and 4 miles on the flat but at a relaxed pace because I am enjoying the ambience and also looking at stunning views and snooping after wildlife.
Also, flat, flat, flat.
Which is exactly why I said it wasn't to the extent that it would dramatically improve my fitness.
Given that I've been doing it for years.
In the past I have walked a 4 mile course with the target of completing it in under an hour, which did raise my fitness.
However, boring after a while.
Also, route is crammed with others and in this environment I prefer to avoid people where possible.
Knees and legs generally are knackered so I can't run any more.
