Somehow, how far should a 70 year old walk every day?
Generally, older adults in good physical shape walk somewhere between 2,000 and 9,000 steps daily. This translates into walking distances of 1 and 4-1/2 miles respectively. Increasing the walking distance by roughly a mile will produce health benefits.
Is walking on the treadmill 30 minutes a day enough?
Walking at a brisk pace for 30 to 60 minutes most days of the week, or a total of 150 to 300 minutes per week, is recommended to reduce health risks. If you do tougher walking workouts on the treadmill and usually skip a day, add easy walks on the off days.

Exerpeutic TF1000 Ultra High Capacity Walk to Fitness Electric Treadmill, 400 lbs
Electric walking treadmill with 1.5-horsepower high-torque motor
Adjustable speed up to 4 miles per hour in 0.1 mph increments
Studies have shown that 30 minutes of daily moderate cardiovascular exercise, even in 10-minute increments, can increase fitness and substantially reduce disease risk. Walking is one of the best aerobic exercises because it also helps maintain bone.
A large meta-analysis found that, on average, walking 1 to 3 miles at about a 20-minute-mile pace results in a reduction in death risk of about 10 percent. Many of these studies do not separate out speed and duration, but to the extent they do, it seems like walking faster may be better than walking slower.
Walking 10,000 steps equates to about five miles a day, which is quite an increase for those who sit at a desk all day. It comes out to about 90 active minutes a day, which is three times the amount recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
For Even Greater Health Benefits If you go beyond 300 minutes a week of moderate-intensity activity (60 minutes a day, 5 days a week), or 150 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity activity (30 minutes a day, 5 days a week), or an equivalent combination, you'll gain even more health benefits.
