Healthy Steps – Post 1

I've decided to let you in on a secret. Walking is good for you. You should try it. I am. For May 2nd, 2012, I walked 31,822 steps or about 14.2 miles. I call it weight-steppin' because I do this walk with ankle-weights. Come walk with me.
My current Goal is to walk one Million Steps in under 90 days or about 470 miles. (with ankle-weights) Come walk with me...the weights are optional, lol.

    I enjoy walking too. Ideally, and I haven’t done this in a while, I would walk 10,000 steps daily. Walking is the best exercise!

    Good for you, papajeff. It’s a wonderful way to exercise and stay healthy. I walk fast and sometimes jog, on my treadmill three times a day. I find that I have so much more energy after the exercise.

    I used to run marathons but those days are long gone. I do jog but my knees dont like it these days so I have started walking. 120 paces to the minute, like light infantry marching pace. I thought 3 or 4 miles was OK – 14.2?? Never thought of ankle weights. What does that do to the impact?
