    I walk a lot due to my work. But it's on concrete, so not great for the knees....I probably clock anywhere from 2-4 miles a day on concrete, this includes .....several stairways totaling 1,000 steps (I counted them) going down to an elevation of 143' and up to 252'
    I took Glucosamine and also it starts with a C can't remember.....it worked for a while and then just didn't seem to work anymore. I found that good shoes are the ticket. I wear soles out on my work boots every year at the heel throwing thing's out of whack and I'm sure stressing joints. I start feeling it in my knees when it's time to replace my kicks.

    Keep moving is my policy.

    There is a fair amount of research which suggests that walking and running on concrete surfaces is not as harmful as people think. It's certain that walking on concrete is better for your health and your knees that sitting at a desk for 7-8hrs a day.
