It doesn't matter what your speed is compared to others! What matters is how you feel. Use the talk test to determine how effective your workout is for you:

That's a great pace... I have found the longer the walk the better the results.

Look at them GAINS!

3.5 mph is a good walking pace for anyone.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

I started walking just about daily when I started my lifestyle change on 7/17. My question in this I am currently walking at about a 3.5 Mile per Hour pace, is that a decent pace for a over 400 pound person? Thanks.
