徒歩通勤1ヶ月半…「行かなければいけない」&「歩けば交通費節約」のコンボは最強でした

徒歩通勤をはじめて一か月半ほど経ちました。風雨の強い日以外の平日は毎日1時間ちょっと歩いています。

以前にネタっぽい「よかったこと」を書きましたが、実際に1か月以上続けてみて、徒歩通勤という手段自体がダイエットのためにおすすめなのかそうじゃないのか、珍しくマジメに考えてみます。

歩き慣れればどうってことないが、それまでは少し辛抱が必要。

最初のうちは職場についたら一仕事終わったな…と思うぐらい疲労感がありましたが、1か月たったらだいぶ慣れてきました。体力的にはすでにどうってことないです。体力ついたってことですよね。よかった。

この「着いたら疲れた」を乗り越えるまではすこし辛抱が必要かもしれません。特に仕事が忙しいと分かりきっているときにわざわざ朝から疲れてしまうのは拷問以外の何者でもありません。ぼくの場合は、さすがに本当に忙しいときは徒歩通勤を休んでました。あるいは、雨天時は徒歩を休むぐらいのペースで行くとだいぶ体の負担も減ると思います。ただ今年の札幌はこの4〜5月の降水量がめちゃくちゃ少なくあまり休めなかったのですが…。

あと、運動のせいで日中足がだるくなる等への対策も必要です。前にもストレッチの話を書きましたが、足がだるくなったりしないように、職場についたら自席でできる範囲でストレッチを入念にやってるので、仕事していても足がだるくなったりすることはないです。

「行かなければいけない」&「歩けば交通費節約」のコンボで、モチベーションが維持しやすかった

結果的に徒歩通勤を続けられた大きな要因は、実はこれだと思っています。朝のジョギングみたいなものと違ってぼくの場合はあくまで通勤なので、「めんどくさいから今日は行かない」というわけにはいきません。しかも「交通費が節約できる」という大きなインセンティブもあります。

これがけっこうモチベーションの維持に有効でした。早朝に起きて1時間ぐらい歩いて家に帰ってくる、その後あらためて出勤…とかだったらたぶん続かなかったかもしれない。めんどくさい上に、やったご褒美があるわけでもありません。

体重は減っているので効果はありそう。

この徒歩通勤一回で、概ね300Kcal弱を消費している計算。1か月にだいたい15回ほど歩けたので、4500Kcalが消費できました。脂肪で換算するとおよそ0.6kg分です。まぁまぁいいペースです。今月は1ヶ月1kg減のペースとしてはちょうどよい感じで減っているので、今後も(食べ過ぎなければ)これだけで少しずつですが体重を落として行くことは出来そうです。

しばらく続けるけど、これからの時期は暑さ対策が必要。

ということで、今後も歩き続けようとは思うのですが、これから気をつけなくちゃなーと思っていることがあります。5月の札幌は気候的にちょうどよいので快適なのですが、これから暑くなってきた頃は少し暑さ対策をしなければいけないかもしれません。

まず日焼け。天気がいいのですでに若干日焼けしちゃってます。今後日差しも強くなってくるので、日焼け止めくらい塗って行った方がよさそう。帽子も必須ですよね。

あと、汗かきそうなので夏の間は着替えも持って行った方がよさそうです。仕事場で汗臭いのもちょっとひんしゅく買ってしまいそうですし…(笑)
