emoticon I am also a walker. I not only enjoy walking for exercise but it gives me time to think or just chill out and enjoy life around me.
I would love to be able to run again, but it won't happen in this lifetime due to back issues. emoticon

Welcome to the team! I don't run either. My knees just won't let me do it, and I hate running anyway. I LIKE walking, so that's what I do. Good luck meeting your goals!

Hi
I am a walker(14 to 15 per mile) too and I was trying to run but the least I can do is only 3 minutes during my workout, it is only last week that I started running with help of a nice woman I met in the spark who teach me how to do it. She said that to walk for 5 minutes then run for 3 minutes then walk for 5 minutes and run for 4 minutes... so far and so on. When I started walking for 5 minutes and I started running; guest what I was running for 15 minutes non stop, then another 15 minutes non stop. The next day I run for 30 minutes non stop. My point is if you are a fast walker, running will be a little easier. Try to do 5 min walk and 3 min run and add 2 min to the running every day if you can, for sure you can improve your running in 3 weeks. Lol

I, too, have trouble jogging/running, and I have found I enjoy walking both am/pm. Good luck on your program

I have been focusing on adding more exercise into my life for almost a year now. I have discovered and I'm just not meant to be a runner, I've tried. I've taken up walking every morning before work and sometimes in the afternoons as well.

I'm looking forward to completing challenges and watching the scale drop!
