... read a good book every now and then, get some walking in, and try and live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations.

Could you tell me please the meaning of "get some walking in"?

Does it simply mean "go for a walk"?

Or walk in here means"allowing people to come without planning to do so in advance"?

The fuller text:

Now, here’s the meaning of life … Well, it’s nothing very special, really. Uh, try and be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in, and try and live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations.

The phrase is not walk in but get some X in.

It means "do some X", but with a bit more - it has a suggestion of X being a goal to achieve. This might be a matter of fitting it into a busy schedule, but you might also say "I'm going away for the weekend - I want to get some walking in".

So in this context, "get some walking in" is seen as a desirable end, something to be fitted into one's life-plan.
