Have fun my friend! Walking is the best exercise for your whole overall health...me on the other hand, hate to walk. I always seem to do better on a stairmaster or bicycle. You see, I'm not lazy, have no problem with exercise but to me, unless it's on the beach or a site seeing adventure, I don't walk.

Good luck!  Watch out for the sun....use sunscreen.  I have to walk early in the morning when it is not toooooo hot. I have to watch out for the snakes, too!  :-  I like jumping on my mini tramp and doing weight lifting the best.

12 miles? Wow!  good for you, i like to walk but find 2 miles is enough for me, you dont want to get "burned out" and 12 miles would burn me out  :confused1: :confused1: :confused1:

I agree.  How used to walking are you?  If you are new to it, walking 12 miles at the start won't do anything but possibly injure muscles that may not have the endurance for such a walk.
If you are new to walking, start off small, with a few 10 minute walks everyday.  Then you'd build up from there.  You'd want to take water with you as your walks get longer; it's recommended that you drink water about every 15 minutes to stave off dehydration.

If you are used to walking such lengths, enjoy your walk!  (but don't forget your water)

I am on a walking kind of thing, but I can only do a mile and the day I can walk 12 miles will be a blessing.  I will try to make it two miles real soon, wish me luck!

Wow!  12 miles is a lot of steps.  I and a friend try to walk almost 2 miles 5 times a week, but we are both 74 (almost.}
