Power Walking: Week 1 Day 1

First day of the Power Walk practice: great weather!

Started the practice at 1.25pm, ended it at 1.55pm, around Arthur Seat.
During my slow tempo I had to take some pictures...too good to miss :-)

Feedback on the day:

  • kept reminding the technique - land on heel, roll on sole, push on toes, keeping the back leg straight, all while moving the arms on the side; tried to be aware of the shoulders and neck muscle tension, and done some quick stretches to get rid of it.
  • kept breathing - in (step 1,2), out - (step 3,4), focusing on using abdominal muscles.

Looking forward for day 2 :-)
