A walk with the Legstretchers

As Sunday is my walking day I took myself off to Sheringham to walk with the Legstretcher Group.

This group meets on the 3rd Sunday of every month and is the only group to do local ish walks of more than 15 miles, because of this I can see us walking  with this group more often.

It was great to catch up with everyone and as expected the walk was beautiful it included a taste of the Weavers Way and the Coastal Path.

What I didn’t expect was the fantastic day long sun shine, it took me completely by surprise as it had been so winter like during the week.

I also used this walk to have a little experiment with my HRM, exercising in the different zones really interests me, not that I have managed to work out my zones yet !!

When I run 10k in just over an hour  I burn  834 calories and my avg heart rate is 159

Yesterday I walked 17 miles in around 6.5 hours I burnt 1656 calories and my avg heart rate was 92

So by cross training I must be working in 2 different zones, which must be helping to build up my stamina and burn fat too…….. well I hope it is 🙂 🙂

Hopefully Geoff will let me run with his nice new HRM and his special iphone app, once he returns from walking the Southern Upland Way and then I will know what my zones are…….
