Go Beyond Walking (continued)
Many people are wrong in assuming that a slow 45 minutes walk is the equivalent of a vigorous 25 minute jog. Your heart like any other muscle, has to be pushed in order to grow stronger. If your working in a zone to burn calories and possibly fat, you should be sweating, somewhat out of breath. You be able to talk in short sentences not full blown conversations. If you walk on a treadmill increase the elevation and speed controls. If you walk outside make a conscious effort to walk faster and faster, and or find some hills.
