I’m an Olympic Silver Medalist and 2-time World Champion in the wild sport of Water Polo. If you’ve ever seen or played water polo, it’s like a blend of basketball, soccer and hockey, but in the water.
As a goalkeeper, I’ve spent thousands of hours treading water. Even when I was training 6 hours a day when preparing for the Olympics, I still found walking to be so helpful for my body and mind.
Here’s 3 things I love about walking:
- Bringing friends along to chat with.
- Going for a walk on my own to clear my head, especially after a tough day.
- Spending time in nature (another favorite thing of mine) by being outside and often by trees.
