Training Tuesdays: Charleston Challenge Safety

Happy Training Tuesday!  Today’s training tip focuses on the basic information regarding safety during our Challenge Walk.

Safety is our number one priority. We need safety to be your number one priority too.

Training and safety aren’t just about wearing the right shoes and socks, paying attention to traffic, and knowing the rules of the road. Those are very important measures, but long-distance walking training and safety involves much more and will help ensure that your Charleston Challenge 2013 experience is safe and enjoyable. Training and safety include crucial preparation and knowledge including: nutrition, hydration, conditioning and road etiquette, just to name a few.

Walking 50 miles takes commitment and training. You will take about 100,000 individual steps during the Challenge Walk. Although the Charleston Challenge is for people of all abilities, you do need to prepare your body physically and mentally. By conditioning your body before the Challenge Walk, you will have more fun and less likely to experience injuries and pain. And as a quick tip, once you register: start training!
