How much walking should you do when retired to keep sharp?

In brief: As much as you can!
Walking is a great form of exercise, especially when you go at a pace that makes you just slightly short of breath, such that you can't speak a full sentence.
This type of exercise tones your heart and lungs, helps your digestive and immune systems, and is good for the brain -- to prevent depression and other problems. Keep going!
