Fitness Experts Promote Walk To Work Day Goal Is To Make Walking Fun, Not Chore

Goal Is To Make Walking Fun, Not Chore

WASHINGTON -- It's time to get out of your car and on your feet, fitness experts say.

Friday marks the second annual National Walk to Work Day, sponsored by the American Council for Fitness and Nutrition. The idea is to get people to find simple ways to incorporate regular physical activity into their daily lives.

Good idea, but I wonder how many people actually live within walking distance of work...

...I suppose they can just take the stairs instead of the elevator then.

I would like to do this, but I live 20 miles from where I work. Anyway, when the weather gets a little nicer, I'll be taking my nightly walk with the ol' puppy dog.

I walk to work every day. The "headquarters" of the San Diego Unified School District is smack in the middle of an otherwise old and established neighborhood of San Diego called "University Heights". I live 2 blocks from my office...and with today's gas prices, I'm counting my blessings.

I live 3 miles from work and try to ride my bike whenever the weather permits. I do walk at lunch though, everyday. I drove around the block where I work and found it to be exactly 1/2 mile. For the last 2 years I "walk the block" 4 times at lunch in about 25 minutes (then sweat for 15 minutes while cooling off) but I have dropped my weight, bp, cholestorol, and feel much better overall because of it.

Walk on.....
