Walking for exercise is one of the most important forms of physical activity you can do. This is a frequent topic and one that I’ve written about many times. It is easy, free, you can do it anywhere and at anytime and it is super duper healthy. Walking just 30 minutes 5 times a week, at a brisk pace, has tremendous health benefits. Here are links two articles the first titled “30 minutes for life” details the health benefits of a daily walking program. The second article talks about starting a walking program, what shoes to wear, how to monitor your heart rate, and includes a walking log.
