I'm not adverse to walking, but today I discovered just how many calories can be burned by putting one foot in front of the other at a normal pace - i.e. Not running. I set out to find just how far 5km is in my neighbourhood before starting the C25K challenge next week.
I ended up walking 7km in total and burned 412 calories. I wasn't power walking, just plodding along with my dog in the sunshine. That's given me the motivation to get out more. My poor dog's short legs will be none existent soon!!!
