Stana Katic ATP-ing (1/3): Walking

I know the car is a necessity, at least in our day and age, but it doesn’t have to be the only way of travelling.” - Stana Katic

  • Burning 500-1000 calories per week, which equates to approximately 6-12 miles walking for an average weight person, reduces the risk of premature death by 20-30%. Walkit.com
  • If every adult in the UK replaced one 1-mile car journey per month by walking, over 300,000 tons of CO2 would be saved annually. Walkit.com
  • 60% of the pollution created by automobile emissions happens in the first few minutes of operation, meaning that shorter car trips are more polluting on a per mile basis than longer trips. Pedestrian & Bicycle Information Center

The sun popped out this afternoon so clubathletica and I - the injured and the sick - took Mitzy for a walk around the park while The Husb practised his drone operation skills (he needs it for a pending job). The 2km left me feeling tired - the cold virus has knocked the stuffing out of me.

This evening The Boy had his mates over for a pizza night. Gosh they make me laugh but lawd they drink - so many beer bottles. I’m off to bed having instructed them not to break any (fingers crossed).

Oh and there’s my healthy afternoon snack.
