Why You Should Walk More
Walking is the ugly stepchild of the exercise world. Like Cinderella it is far more beautiful than her more ostentatious stepsisters.
J.J. Watt, defensive star of the Houston Texans said in an interview on his injury and subsequent surgery that he was not allowed to work out in his early rehab so all he could do was walk. As a result, he found himself walking around 12 miles a day. He said he loved what it did for him mentally as well as physically. His only complaint was that he was wearing out his shoes.
