Walking can often attain better long-term health results with fewer injuries than engaging in a more vigrous exercise that is harder on your bones and joints. Don't get me wrong - I love strenuous, sweat-inducing, push-it-to-the limits workouts. SOMETIMES. But you pay for this kind of training if you over-indulge in it. Stress fractures, joint inflammation, high cortisol levels, to name a few.
I highly recommend long, daily walks for gentle cardio as well as stress relief. I prefer hiking through open meadows as well as wooded trails and I enjoy a daily 2 mile walk through my pretty neighborhood.
To maintain my muscular strength, I incorporate a mix of kettlebell training, TRX focused drills and creative body-weight challenges.
