'Walk-Commuting'



I have always been fairly active, from waterbabies to 100m sprinting, to pole fitness. Since moving from Canary Wharf to the opposite eyot, I have found a new love of walking. Walking is brilliant exercise, not just for pregnant women but for all; you get the cardiovascular benefits without putting too much strain on your knees and joints. Living in SW London with the office on Oxford Street, means that I can ‘walk-commute’…and what a beautiful commute it is! Along Kensington High Street, through Kensington gardens and Hyde Park, and lastly through the smells of Soho!


I have been lucky enough to incorporate my walking into my daily life, and all for no more than 5.8miles (just over 5 miles if I am being lazy) and no more than an hour and a half of my day; used to be 65 minutes before pregnancy fatigue and slowness kicked in! NHS guidelines recommend that you walk for 150 minutes a week, and I am able to achieve double that in a slow week!


Think of what you could do this week…
