HI Skinny

It will definitely help - you can do everything possible, and it all helps. Therefore, even though it may be less that normal, it's still going to benefit you. Of course, perhaps on weekends, you can walk a little earlier, and then you can do your normal walk of 5 or more kilometers, but if you can't then don't do nothing - do what you can.

The other thing that you can consider is that seeing that you will only be walking for about 20 to 30 minutes, you can now walk this a little faster than you normally would - therefore, increase the intensity a little once or twice a week, to help make up for the shorter duration.

Good luck
