It takes me about 45 minutes to wlk to work. The problem is I don't feel puffed or out of breath sweaty (thankfully as I work in an office). The same is true when I come home an it is all up hill!
I am trying to lose weight and am considering doing some early morning cardio on empty stomach. Besides walking to and from work daily.
Will this be too much?

    Interesting post about fasted cardio -


    I'm no expert and certainly not lean enough to be offering advice but I hear a lot of people rave about HIIT alternated with low intensity SSCV.

    Why dont you run to and from work, get your heart rate up ?  If you dont want to be sweaty in work walk as normal to work bring your training clothes and do sprints all the way home :)

    youre not likely to feel massively out of breath after walking as it is low impact and intensity, however you will be burning a fair few calories from a 45minute walk, providing its a decent pace.
    If you feel you can cope with the extra cardio in the morning then why not, youll never know until you test it out

    ive read a few times doing cardio at between 110 & 130bpm is very good for burning fat and maintaining muscle but of course youll need a heart monitor to do this

    When ever I have to walk anywhere long distance I always strap leg weights to my ankles
    You could try this as well :)

    I shouldn't have thought it would be too much but the law of diminishing returns does come in here. I would:
    1) treat the walk like a recovery
    2) Focus again on the other factors with your training (weights? circuits?)
    3) Recognise your diet is by far the biggest factor here.
