“Burns more fat than jogging” – really? I find that hard to believe. Why would that be the case? For the same amount of time, I thought more vigorous exercise like jogging would use more energy, thus burning more calories.

Nevertheless, a good reminder than walking can be very good exercise.

Certainly any form of exercise is better than none! Starting out slow tends to be more sustaining than jumping in “head first”. Add some hills to those walks…you’ll get your heart rate up pretty quick.

I’m just getting back to walking at least 2 miles everyday…. Or, is it, every day? I always get those two mixed up….

I am thankful that my walking time is good for me, but it is also my thinking time and reflecting time. Either way, time well spent.

I tweeted this out to my followers because some historical travel sites do require some moderate walking. It would be a shame to travel all the way to the Great Wall of China and find you’re not in reasonable shape to walk up to it.
