It's a matter of degree
There's walking, which you do as a matter of course during your day, and walking, which is a concerted effort to get back where you started by the longest route you feel you can cover in a certain amount of time.
Because walking is the least obnoxious exercise, I do a fair bit of it, especially since getting the dog.
I tell ya, the right shoes really do make a difference when you are walking. Unfortunately, the best also wear out really quickly. I'm talking about the ones with little air bladders. After six months my personal wear pattern results in the soles of my sneakers eroding to the point where the air bladder is exposed and splits. So, the sneakers squeak as a I walk, and suck in water from puddles.
I wanna know what cross trainers are. Do you use them to run away from Roman soldiers?
