walking for 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week over a lifetime is ~10k hours.

Research says it'll extend one's life about a year or so which is ~10k hours.

Why would I waste the hours of my youth for equivalent hours at the end of my days?

If I enjoyed walking sure, but then I'd do it anyway not for the longevity benefit.
