Normally on a working day when walking my dog I do half an hour between 9am and 9 30 am and I try to make that a brisk walk. At the moment I’m doing an hour due to Coronavirus as self isolating. Then between 12pm mad 12 30 I do a 20 min dog walk and tea time is a 10 min brisk walk as Im back out on shift after tea time til 10 30 pm at night. On my days off I do my usual half hour walk at 9am then in the afternoon I would like head to the beach for a longer walk weather permitting. Do to my shift work I wouldn’t be exercising later on a night but I’m happy with this as I would have more concerns on blood sugars running low during the night when I’m sleeping.
