Don’t let shorter days get you down. Plan a cardio lunch break outdoors at Myrtle Edwards and Centennial Parks to boost your mood and calorie burn. **Whether you are a walker, jogger, skater, biker, or just plain people watcher – go get some fresh air!
If you park down at Clay St and Alaskan Way, you will get in 3 miles walking the trail of the two connected parks.
*A 145 pound person would burn about:
- 230 calories walking 3 miles
- 325 calories jogging 3 miles
- 275 calories biking or skating 3 miles
- 48 calories sitting and people watching. Come on, at least go walk as you people-watch!
*These are estimates, actual numbers depend on your weight, metabolism, and intensity (diet thermogenesis, basal metabolic rate, and intensity of physical activity to get technical).
**Consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise program.
