Lots of guys have cited walking as a help to continence. I assume walking has a positive effect on the pelvic floor muscles, are you still doing your pelvic floor exercises and are you doing them correctly. Can you hold some urine and if so can you  stop a normal urine flow midstream,don't try this all the time it is frowned upon by  some incontinence nurses. I walk about three miles in the morning with our dog and I do not leak until I stop walking.

Thanks Chris

I found that walking was the last bit of incontinence where I leaked a lot. I simply persisted with it, making myself walk further every day and during the walk take an interest in what you are seeing rather than how you are feeling. A lot will not agree with the next bit but in the end I swapped pads for a Conveen system and leg bag for my walks and because it wasn't so uncomfortable the situation rapidly improved. That was purely my experience and I do sympathise as it is not pleasant but you can't let it stop you doing what you want. I think the more your mind is occupied with other stuff the more your subconscious takes over your continence.
