Jack and I walk in the mornings.
We started this about 5 weeks ago it was one week after my stent was put in and so far we manage to walk 5 -6 days a week. Currently our goal is 2 1/2 – 3 miles per day our November goal is going to be 3 miles.
It has made a huge difference in the way we feel.
I wear Asics Gel Nimbus running shoes they are quite expensive $150.00 per pair but I catch them on sale for usually $80.00 at the Asics store.
I try and keep 2 pairs so I can alternate them. I just got a new pair I am breaking in by wearing them a few days a week on the walks.
Orthopedics and Podiatrist are recommending Asics for their patients to wear because the support is amazing and they are good for your feet.
Asics tennis shoes like all other brands come in a variety of prices BUT there is a huge difference in the way they feel on your feet. I am spoiled to the Gel -Nimbus and the Gel – Kayano line of shoes.
Even the $50.00 Asics are better than $100.00 Nikes.
Here is a picture of my latest bright blue pair of Asics I love this color. The next pair will need to be more neutral colored but I wear a lot of blue so these work out well.
Walking for your health is very important for all ages but especially if you are over 60 years old. Challenge your mind and your body for optimum health.
Remember if you do not use it you will loose it!
