I came across this in my morning's reading. I read everything from all over the world. But, this struck a chord.

While it is a different style of walking, it could be a valid training method...for some...

Hope this helps.

I'am not perfect, but I'm always myself!!!
I was always good in fast walking which is also an athletic/olympic discipline and I still enjoy it sometimes. BUT if you are doing it for decades better count on hip replacement surgery way sooner as doing any other sport(s).

Just sayin'

Or... the ever popular... "The journey IS the destination..."
Indeed! The instant we take that first step.
The effort required to compel mind, body, and spirit into the starting blocks, regardless of the endeavor (climbing a mountain, starting a business, running a marathon), is the mark of our human enterprise and progress—as we challenge ourselves at every turn. Neither age, impairment, nor status shall deter us.

So glad I read all your posts. Sometimes it feels I am the slowest walker in the world and I start wishing I could go faster. You have just confirmed once again that your way is your way and it is the best way for you - now just need to remember that xx
