Our new Team in Training coach is teaching us real race walking. That's right -- the hip wiggle is here.

She takes long strides, that's not how we do it.

Am I the only one that would say screw it, I'll just run? I though I was a pretty secure guy but I couldn't walk down the street like that. :p

The stride seems exagerrated when guys do it, anyway. I think it's an equipment problem.

And while I fully appreciate the difficulty of doing this well, I struggle with the concept of "go as fast as you can while going slow."

Next up: TdF on 20" unicycles.

It's weird to watch........she's moving at a jogging pace, but is walking.

I've heard it's hell on hips and knees if you don't do it right.

Am I the only one that thinks Susan G Komen missed the boat and should have some up with the Team In Training name for her organization...
