Hello,

I do some walking, usually 1.5 miles a day.
Any of you do a lot of walking? I just strap on my pedometer and read it at the end of the day.
To-day it reads 9810 feet; 1.82 miles, calories burned 162.4. I know I ate more then that.!

Guido.

Before I retired, my office desk was on one end of the plant and the line was on the other. I would easily get 5 miles plus each day. And I loved it. Then some genius manager thought it would be better to move my group closer to the line. Then he was always whining because we were always late for his meetings. I still like to walk a lot each day but sometimes weather persuades me to cut back.

I have found I do a lot more walking as I get older. It usually results from getting up, walking to another room to get something and when I get there I totally forgot why I did it. I then usually start the whole process over again. This happens more and more often so I get good exersize.

I'm leaving in 2 weeks for Colorado Elk Muzzloading season. We do 2 miles horizontal and 1/2 mile verticle to spike camp with a weeks worth of provisions and clothing and guns on a pack. It's butt kicker. I've been trying to put on 2-3 miles a day and do 65lb pack work outs and stairs 3xs a week. At work this week watched contractor tight blade level bituminous road. There were some pretty tired young guys out there chasing belly dumps 6.5 miles each way dumping spreads 980' long a load. Too much running for this guy!

Hi Guido,

I mixed 21 wheelbarrow loads of concrete by hand yesterday afternoon, and about the same number two evenings before. There was some walking involved in wheeling each load to where it was needed, but honestly, it was mostly mixing and shoveling. My shoulders hurt all night both times. What does this have to do with what you asked? Not too much, I guess.

Stan

I try to do at least 3 miles a few times a week, dedicated walk + normal daily walking. I have some back problems and it helps.

Guido, I walk 2 miles, 5 days every week (at about 6:00am) I do this in prox 34.5 to 36.5 minutes, on average. Occasionally if the Moon and Stars are in correct order 33.5 minutes! Personally for me it is the fact that one needs to get their heart rate up for 25 minutes to get in shape. Not the calories burned, Most of us as we get older get a more sedentary so a Regular Exercise Regime is more necessary than ever. My morning routine is not a leisurely stroll! I am marching it off is rapid order! This is what I do!
Later,
John A.

If I so much as tried to walk that far #1 my doctor would get mad at me and #2 my right knee would go AWOL on me. Doctor say 100 yards take 5 minutes and rest and then maybe another 100 yards. Doctors says wear your knee brace if your going to be on your feet much and a cane

Piker..."8^)

I'm 62, about to be 63. I have borderline high blood pressure (14x/8x) and DO NOT want to deal with BP meds and their side effects.

Part of my regimen to stay off BP meds includes 2 miles a day, 6 days a week @ 4mph on the treadmill. I should actually bump that up a notch as I don't even breathe hard at that rate any more. The idea is to get the heart rate up and keep it up for 20 minutes.

I wore a pedometer one day, and in addition to the 2 miles on the treadmill, I walked 6 miles just dubbing around the house and property.

Last week on my annual bicycling and backpacking trip to the Adirondacks I walked 17 miles on one day, more than half of it with a loaded frame backpack. A normal day for me is quite a bit less than that, but I like to be able to do more without being sore the next day as a result.

My wife has one of those straps on her wrist, she trys to get 10,000 steps in everyday.
My wife also has a real nice tread mill that she inherited when her dad died 10 years ago.

My brain would say. You can do it. My knees would say no we can't. I do most of my walking at night. Walk flush and walk back. Repeat as many times as needed.

Walking and bicycling outside when the weather is good. In the winter I will cross country ski. I enjoy that much more than shoveling snow.
