11 May 2012It's time for a walkout! And a walk to, walk from, walk around and walk back again...
During May the Great British Walking Challenge is encouraging people to take to the streets and travel by foot.
...good for your health and wellbeing,
...free & easy,
...good for the environment,
Using a clever online tool at Living Streets, you can log your walking miles to work out how many steps you have taken, promoting a bit of healthy banter and competitiveness between colleagues, by seeing who has walked the most (or the least). You can also walk for the team and contribute to an overall University score by identifying University of Bristol as your 'workplace'.
The week beginning 14th May is Walk to Work Week so it's a great time to fit a stroll into your day. The best thing about walking is that you can do it at any point during the day. You could stretch your legs on your lunch break, volunteer to take the post or you could physically go outside and walk to get a coffee.
Later in May we are organising some special lunchtime walking tours so you don't have to walk alone, and can learn a bit about the local surroundings not enjoyed by car....
So for the benefit of your health and mental well being, put shanks' pony to good use!
