Swollen Fingers On Your Long Walk?


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

In training for a marathon walk, I learned that walking w/your arms swinging at your sides causes the swollen fingers. Proper form has the forearm at a 90 degree angle (like a runner) which prevents the swelling. If this is hard, hold a string or stick between your hands to help keep hands up.

    I had no idea but that happens to me all the time and I find it extremely annoying. Thank you for sharing.
