After two days of intense cardio, a long but swift walk outdoors is just what your body needs right now. Walking reaps the same benefits as running with less risk of injury. In fact, if you take a brisk walk covering 3.5 miles in an hour, you can burn about 280 calories. When repeated each day, you’ll burn about 3,900 calories — more than a pound of fat — every two weeks! Not bad. It's especially great for beginners who are just starting their fitness journey.
Walking outdoors among the trees for a mere 20 minutes a day can boost your mood and energy levels.
