Information for Heart Walk Participants

Health Benefits of Walking
At least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week i.e. 150 minutes a week walking can improve your health and keep you in good shape.
All you need are your two legs.
You don't have to get special equipment apart from your jogging suit and shoes.
Walking enables you to breath more oxygen to your blood circulation, pump more blood to your peripheral and heart muscles, makes your heart stronger and pump more blood through the heart valves to your organs, thus improving your circulation. Thereby, your metabolism is activated, the vessels are dilated which can lower your blood pressure. It can help you burn more calories, lose body fat and improve your joint health and sleep cycle and mood.
It could lower your odds of having high blood pressure, heart disease and blood sugar in type 2 diabetes.

Heart Walk As A Social Activity
Walking with love ones, friends or partners has besides its health benefits the potential to turn into a pleasant social occasion. It's a good chance to connect. You may find a willing friend or partner, who might try a regular date to meet up for a walk -- daily, weekly, or whatever works best for the two of you.

Deadline for Registration: Friday, 10 Feb. 2023 to ensure availability of your Lacoste shirt size.

Wear the Right Shoes
What makes a good walking shoe? The shoe should fit your foot, not tight,  has a material that "breathes," water resistance and flexibility from heel to toe.
Jogging Suit with the Right Stuff to Protect You.
Your jogging suit should be loose, comfortable, and breathable. You'll need a rain coat if the weather looks iffy, as well as a hat, sunglasses to protect you from the sun.
Drink Water
You sweat more when you exercise, which means you lose water more quickly. When water levels get too low (dehydration) you might feel tired, nauseated, dizzy, or confused. You might not notice the sweat you lose if the air is cool. Top off your tank with a couple of extra cups in the hours before you head out for a walk. Consider bringing some with you if it's really hot outside or you're going a long way.
Measure Your Daily Physical Activity
There are all kinds of gadgets and apps that can tell you how far you go each day in steps or miles/ kilometers. Some might even tell you how many calories you've burned. An app on your phone might be the easiest to use, but there are other small digital devices that do the same thing, and even a mechanical one called a pedometer that counts steps.
