I decided to go on a brisk walk today in nature and around my house because I was being quite inactive and wanted to get out and move my body without doing a full workout. This is a tracking app that helps to shows how many calories I may have burnt in that workout and prove my progress. I think that though I’ve never loved walking and used to get really tired of walking very easily, I’ve gotten so much better at it and can walk longer distances without feeling tired or feeling a burden on my legs so I think that’s a great benefit I was able to directly feel from the workouts that I’ve been doing recently.
Total: 35 Minutes
I decided to go for a stamina based workout that was 40 minutes long where I walked and ran for 5km and burned 352.1 calories. I think that the workout was successful because though it had been a while since I had done a proper workout, I realised the stamina I had build last month was contributing to my overall fitness for this workout. By walking on an incline, I think I was able to really work on building some muscle on my legs to help when I go hiking in Bhutan for my expedition trip.
Total: 40 Minutes
This week I followed a youtube tutorial to do a pilates workout as I wanted to try some different genres of workouts and wanted to try working on my core, a key component to stamina. By doing so, I think that I was able to work on a lot of the areas that I wouldn’t usually be able to work on with my usual running and walking exercises. Recently, I have been really enjoying experimenting with different workouts and finding other ways to stay active. After learning about pilates in PE, I think that doing at home was the right option for me to begin trying different activities.
