If you've entered the annual Blisters for Bread Charity Walk in Cape Town this weekend, Ceri Hannan, the national exercise manager of Virgin Active has a few tips to ensure a comfortable walk on the day.
Walk heel to toe and not flat footed to increase speed;
Contact the ground with your heel;
Roll your foot over the centre of your foot;
Push off with your toes.
Rotate your hips backwards and forwards as you walk twisting your waist. This may look and feel a little awkward at first, but you’ll notice that restricted hip movements decreases your speed.
