Stepping up

Today’s walk was up and around my local hill. We walked up to the park along horizontal and then steep sections. We had a look round, sat on a bench for a while, then we carried on and walked further than we did before.

Clearly I’m not doing this because it’s part of my life. I don’t need to walk to collect water or food. But I’m doing it for my health, a first world problem.

Anyway it’s more than I’ve done for a year and it’s got to be good for my heart. I now need to build up my distances safely, because after suffering a pulled calf muscle I don’t want to do that again!

  1. I think walking and seeing nature is good for the OTHER aspect of our heart, not just its physical health but its spirit and emotion. Calf muscles are tested climbing stairs and hills. Keeping them warm while you’re exercising can help prevent that.
