      Just walk bro, it’s good to take a brisk walk outside everyday, gets some vitamin D and gives you a good chance to collect yourself. Rucking would help too but in general I wouldn’t recommend it, it can be tough on your joints.

      Most people in the Midwest use time in transit as a metric instead of the literal distance. It’s something I didn’t notice until I lived in the east coast and the south. Instead of asking how long it takes to get somewhere people ask how far it is. Unfortunately gay urban driving and traffic means something can be only 5 miles away and be an over thirty minute drive sometime.

      Travel is measured in time not distance. The distance is irrelevant in current day. How long it takes to get somewhere is what matters.

    It’s not like walking is MANDATORY over there. Almost every major city has Uber to get around. From there I like to get on a tourist bus so I can see all the sights without needing to walk a dangerous amount. A lot of them stop outside the best restaurants too, so it’s even easier.

        Walking is really hard on your joints, it can cause blisters (which can get infective and require amputation). Also, walking in heat is a good way to get heat stroke or dehydration and die.

        There is also the problem that walking is boring. You can’t really do anything to distract yourself. Sometimes when I need to walk, I will watch The Office on my phone, but this is also dangerous as you step into potholes or off curbs etc.

          Don't try to demotivate him with obesefag propaganda. Our bodies were made for walking. Our bodies were made for much worse terrain than your park route or city streets. Walking is hard on your joints if you never move or if you are 150+kg overweight. Blisters are caused by you not having hardened enough feet because you sit around all day and wear shoes 24/7. Like everything you start slow and steadily build up strength.

          >There is also the problem that walking is boring. You can’t really do anything to distract yourself.
          Walking is the distraction. Get out into nature or even just find a route in a suburb and take a break from life. Let your thoughts fly and enjoy life a bit.

    I don't understand the norm of driving literally everywhere in the US, I really don't.
    I tend to walk to my gym regardless of weather, it's a 40-ish minute walk and I find it helps me clear my head and prepare myself to push myself as much as I can, it's a comfy feeling walking in the rain.

      My mom's car broke down a four months ago so I lent her mine while hers was in the shop. I've been walking everywhere ever since. Every day I put on my headphones and walk about an hour to work and then another hour back home while listening to audiobooks, It's pretty comfy.

      uhuh. I bet you live in a large population center in a tiny space where a 40 minute walk means you pass thousands of people and a hundred businesses. I could drive to my gym and back in less than 40 minutes. If I walked it would look like this
      >spend 20 minutes walking out of my subdivision to the main road
      >spend 30 minutes walking past woods on a road with no sidewalk
      >hit first business, it's a saloon
      >walk another 30 minutes, first stop light
      >walk up a steep hill
      >15 minutes later, end up in a commercial area
      >restaurants, gas stations, retail stores etc
      >from there it's another 10 minutes to the gym
      So almost two hours just to get to the gym, then it's 2 hours back. 4 hours of your day is just gone for no reason. This travel time by car is about 10 minutes each way. Travel time is reduced significantly. Also it's currently over 104 degrees here. Could you imagine walking 4 hours a day in the heat of a desert with light and heat bouncing off the grass and pavement? Then doing this every single day? For no reason.

    Literally just walk. If you actually plan to actually do it a lot, do it wherever you're currently living for 1-2 hours. Issues with your shoes will come up if there's any

    If you are decently IST and don't plan on hiking 24/7 out in the terrain then you will have no problem. In the summer months I usually walk between 20k and 50k steps which is about 15-30km (9-18 miles) a day without any real training. Yes it is exhausting but you can always take brakes and you get used to it pretty quick.

    If you are a fat fuck like op pic related then you're fucked and you should wait a few years and get IST first

      this is exactly why i don't get how walking in fitting shoes and socks is considered even that hard (obese people excluded); i find it incredibly difficult to hurt myself by just walking if i just a take a short break every couple of hours and have a bottle of water with me

        I love hiking but I don't consider it a workout. It is exercise for sure but you will not get IST from it. Hiking to me is just a way to get out into nature and take a break from our crumbling society. Then again I live in a country with tall mountains and untouched woods.

    Do steps or pace around while watching TV. Best option would be to hike every couple of days.

    If nothing else, at least stand while using your computer, watching TV, or gaming.

    When I travel around Euro capitals I keep a pretty good pace and usually clock in at least 20k steps a day, sometimes 25k. After a few days like that your legs will start to be a bit stiff so have a rest day planned.
    Mind you this includes taking the metro or tram or bus, I'm not hiking across the city just for the sake of it. But if you actually explore and walk around museums a whole day you should expect to do 20k steps.

    Walking. That's how you train for more walking.
    There's a rectangular thing in your house; that's called the front door. Open it to get into outside world. Walk through the door using your legs and keep moving your legs until you feel somewhat tired. Then turn around and walk back towards your house.

    With no training I walked 5-8 hours a day while I was in Japan. One day I had to walk up that Tori gate mountain 3 times, up and down. It was also extremely hot and my clothes did not suit the weather.

    Long distance hiker here anon. Since you haven't been specific I can only advise so much.

    If it's only going to be shorter distances, but sustained throughout the day, then you want to build yourself up. Start with distances that you can walk to and map out a route so you can enjoy it. I recommend getting used to walking 5k, then up it to 10k, and then 15k. 25k is easily done in good time once you train for it.
    If you're going to be in cities, get used to flat training, in hilly areas then train in hills.

    A few things to remember, carry a water bottle with you at all times, refill and drink regularly.
    Make sure you have a comfortable pair of shoes, go for something made for either trail running or full on hiking. Break them in with smaller rounds of walking, don't just go in new unbroken in shoes.

    Wear a pair of merino wool socks, cool in warm, warm in cool, comfy, antibacterial, and have a spare pair if going longer distances.

    Ranger underpants or other blend synthetics is a life saver, wear loose fitting trousers, this will prevent chafe. Also it's gross, but put vaseline on your thighs, and if a dude on your junk as well, it will reduce chafe.

    Worried about blisters? They will happen regardless, but realistically if you put vaseline on your feet, or wear a synthetic sock as an inner layer for your wool sock, this will cut down on any hot points that can lead to blisters. Don't pop blisters if you are continuing walking, just keep an eye on them, the fluid is meant to cushion and as long as it doesn't get infected, it will be fine.

    Carry some ibuprofen, take one in the morning before any long distance walking.

    Get regular rest, one hour of walking, 15 minutes of rest.

        Lots of long distance hikers take it as a preventative. If you're walking 20+ km a day repeatedly it helps with muscle strain and joint fatigue.

      Have you not thought about carrying a pair of spare running shoes? I always do in my bag, if there is any period where I'm not in the office, on they go, and just change back to oxfords when i arrive.

    In the UK walking is pretty common because parking is shit and we have no money for cars and petrol. It's common for people to have 40 minute walk commutes they do in the cold. I know i do.
