The beauty of walking is its simplicity. It costs nothing, it’s always available, and, of course, it allows you to get from one place to another. Some people say walking inspires thought and helps them sort through life’s difficulties.
If you’ve considered embarking on a new walking routine, you may want to do a bit of preliminary research in order to answer a few questions. Should you use a pedometer? What’s the best walking technique? How often should you walk? All these questions and others are succinctly addressed in a useful little bochure recently released by the American College of Sports Medicine. The organization has a great collection of free brochures addressing an array of excercise and health-related topics.
In related news, a new survey ranks Chicago fifth best city in the nation for walking.
