I been doing 1 hour walking daily is it enough ?
I'm 74 and jogged for 35 years. My resting heartrate was between 56 and 60, regularly. About seven years ago I had to quit jogging because it was bothering my back. I guess all the "impacting" was finally getting to me. So, I started walking, fast walking, two miles a day at about 12 minutes per mile.

Today, my resting heartrate is still about 60 bpm, consistently. So, as far as I'm concerned, walking is pretty much as beneficial as all that jogging was and a lot easier on the old joints.
