"The ideal aerobic exercise is walking. Virtually everyone can do it, almost anywhere. You should have little difficulty elevating your heart rate into your training range on a sustained basis, and it does not put undue strain on any of your joints."
- Terry Grossman, M.D., Fantastic Voyage 

I've been enjoying my long walks again as the injuries to my knees and hips last Spring have healed.  I now walk 90 minutes every day.  My pace is moderate and steady.  I usually listen to Classical and New Age music while walking.  I often take my dog, Bruno, with me on these long walks.
