Varying your speed will help build stamina and tone you faster. Use your usual 20-minute walk as a basis, but instead of walking at one speed for 10 minutes, vary things using markers such as lamp posts to help. Walk gently for 5 minutes to warm up. Walk between three lamp posts at your normal speed, then between two posts at a much faster pace, using a short stride and really pumping your arms. Repeat this for 10 minutes. Finish with 5 minutes at a gentler pace.
No lamp posts? Use trees, post boxes, parked cars – anything! Have you signed up to the Pink Ribbonwalk? Click here to register now
