Six miles--whoa babies


Ever think of walking a 10K? That's 6.21 miles to the non-metrically inclined.

Julia Williams wrote about how to train in yourhealth.com.

First, you need to walk. Start with four days a week, 40 mins a day.

After three weeks, add five minutes a day.

Do some cross-training. This means two days a week you bike, swim or do Pilates for 30 minutes.

Walk slowly at beginning and end of each session. stretch--face a wall, one leg bent and gently stretch the other behind.

Choose good walking shows.

AND--do nothing one day a week. Your muscles need to regroup.

C'mon, that part is doable, right?
