Ask a question...
Walking is just putting one foot in front of the other right? We all know there are some rocks in the road so Wonder Walkers has a resident expert, Wendy Sweet, has the answers to help you dodge the rockfall. If they haven’t answered your question, feel free to ask it here. The more specific you can be in your question, the more specific Wendy can be with her answer!!
And be careful … walking makes you green! That’s right, you are now enviro chicks. Check out our Walking & Environment page. You may be breaking new ground as you stride out … but take a look at our wrap on some of the women who have trod a path before you.
I am looking at run/walking the 9kms leg in this ekidin relay race in Rotorua, can you please tell me what would be the best foods to eat before as I found that the other week when I went and did 8kms I got quite hungry and had some dried apricots and a weight watchers apricot bar along the way. I find I usually exercise in the afternoon and its not as bad but definitely harder in the morning. Thank you

Make sure you eat a good breakfast containing carbohydrates – whole meal toast, cereal or porridge, fruit are all good choices. A small amount of protein (e,g, a boiled egg) can help sustain you if the event is some time after breakfast.
During the activity continue to eat carbohydrate snacks at regular intervals. Keep portions about the same size. Foods such as bananas, honey or jam sandwiches or your weight watchers cereal bars are good choices to help give you energy to get through the event.
