Wear Green and Get Moving!

April 7, 2010

To celebrate National Start! Walking Day the American Heart Association is encouraging everyone to wear green and walk at least thirty minutes. You can find more information on their site, including the positive impact of physical activity.

If you’re beginning a walking or running plan, here are some links to help you get started:

 

Top 100 Workout Songs from Fitness Magazine (we all need motivation!): http://www.fitnessmagazine.com/workout/music/popular-playlists/the-fitness-top-100-workout-songs

 

How to choose the right shoe from The Mayo Clinic: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/walking/HQ00885_D. Personally I love newbalance.com and nike.com, because I have a high arch and these seem to work best.

 

If you are looking for workout gear, I suggest Target, TJ Maxx and Marshall’s.  Target has a nice selection of workout gear and you can normally find something on the clearance rack. I recommend TJ Maxx and Marshall’s, especially for starters, because you will want to try different fabrics and cuts to see what works for you. There is little need to buy expensive pieces, only to find out it doesn’t work for your body type.

Enjoy your walk! Spring is the perfect time to get moving!
