Now to continue the topic of Fitness in 100 Words, with this exciting one:
“Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast.”
Can’t run for whatever reason? That’s fine, bike or row. There’s also the option to walk. The point is that these movements get your heart rate up. The heart is another important muscle in your body that needs training too.
The hard and fast part are one, relative, and two, varies.
The intensity of what’s “hard” depends on each individual. “Fast” is the same.
It’s hard for me to run a mile. Running that distance is hard, it won’t be fast compared to others. Others may find that running a mile is easy and can be very fast, but ask them to run a longer distance and their speed slows. Or ask them to run hard and their times improve.
Walking, for others, is plenty of a challenge. If you are already walking, but running isn’t possible yet, walk faster! If walking is something you already do daily, it’s a great place to start.
If you’re able and have access to do all four (and then some other similar activities), do them all, but vary which one you do each day. Change up the distances. Change up the pacing. Keep it varied so you are well adapted to any challenge.
