Mix It Up - Get Fit Friday!

Mixing your routine challenges different muscles groups and keeps your workouts fresh. For example, walk your current route backwards; find a friend and walk their route; go to the local high school track and walk part backwards or even sideways; seek out a very hilly route to utilize the increased intensity that comes with walking uphill; and vary your distances--some days do a shorter workout at a higher intensity, other days do something a little longer.
