When I lived in the US Virgin Islands, I spent about 3 hrs a day..five days a week, walking at a fairly leisurely pace. I was participating in a volunteer ministry and many of my companions didn't like the heat, couldn't walk all that well or were elderly. Thus, our pace was not a speedy one. During the time I was there, my blood sugars stayed NORMAL..to the point that I even went off the medications to control my blood sugar. I was always trying to figure out how to get exercise in each day..not realizing the benefits of the gentle walking each day.
NOW, here comes a study discussing what I discovered on my own. Have a look.
I am just NOT interested in running...running fast or jogging more slowly. Walking...that I enjoy. So, I know which is for ME!
