    I have a very active job and walk around 10 - 15 miles each day, I know this because I wear a fitbit that tells me how many steps and miles I have done. When I get home from work I am usually nackered, its 2 miles to walk from work as well. I don't do any other exercise apart from walking, do you think this is keeping me fit enough or do I need to do more?

    Out depends on your body. I used to only do walking now as exercise and got really loose knee caps (muscles around my knees became weak) so sometimes when I then walked up the stairs Id get a really sharp pain in my knee to the point I would have to stop mid up the stairs. I was told to do swimming which exercises all of your muscles and now I don't have that problem. I would definitely recommend something that uses different muscles to the ones you use while walking. Is your walking all flat ? Walking uphill can really strengthen and increase your leg muscles.
