Take an Urban Walk

Take a walk around Decatur using the city’s landscape as your outdoor gymnasium.

  • Warm up with an easy 5 minute stroll.
  • Increase intensity for 5 minutes.
  • Do city block intervals for the next ten minutes: Alternate between a slower pace and a faster pace on each block. You can walk up on block at a slow pace, then cross the street and walk back at the faster pace.
  • Find a flight of stairs and walk up taking two steps at a time, then walk down. Continue for one minute.
  • Repeat the city block intervals.
  • Find a tree to support you and do 16 calf raises on each leg. Or if you don’t have a tree do both feet at once and practice balance.
  • Cool down with a 5 minute stroll.
  • When you get home, so some push-ups. If these are difficult, you can do them with your knees dropped or standing and pushing off of the wall.
  • Don’t forget to stretch!
