Peter Walker has been #WalkingFromHome whilst writing his latest book - The Miracle Pill: Why A Sedentary World Is Getting It All Wrong.
Here he tells us why moving more is so important for our health and how he's been upping his steps.
In pre-lockdown times I didn’t normally think too much about walking. I mean, I liked it, and would happily trudge around my part of south-east London, or other places, mainly just to get around and sometimes even for leisure.
But two events, simultaneously, changed that. The first was – obviously – the series of lockdowns that began last March. The second was writing a book about the way everyday physical activity has more or less vanished in the past few decades, and the many consequences this brings.
I’d known the basics about this very normalised pandemic of public health before, but I was amazed to find out just how serious and widespread an issue it is – illness connected to inactive living kills an estimated 100,000 people per year in the UK.
Susan Claris has found a surprising new joy - a 'fake commute'. She tells us more.
Dame Sarah Storey tells us what opportunities the lockdown has created for her family.
