Step Goal

Happy New Year all.

I’m a mature student and finding I’m gaining pounds while sat behind a desk. I’m aiming to gradually increase my activity levels to get in 10’000 steps a day. I’m also doing the couch to 5k ready for a charity run in June.

Time is short most days so need as much motivation as I can get.

Hey Scarlet48, you've come to the right place! With Active 10 research shows that if you brisk walk (so that you can talk, but not sing) for 10 minutes 3 times a day you'll reap the benefits of getting fitter, healthier and lighter! As a student, a ten minute break is just the ticket - and a bit of fresh air inbetween study sessions will surely renew your energy levels. Good luck!

Sitting at a desk is tough - I do it every day for my job. As Kay says, a short walk is a great break from studying. I also am enjoying meeting up with friends for a walk and coffee, rather than always meeting for a sitting coffee or meal. Walking is also great on your off days for C25K. I think you'll enjoy both.
