Are you kidding? I consider taking my 18-lb DOG with me on my walks as upping the intensity. I think only you can decide what makes you feel challenged and don't let anyone (including you) minimize anything you do. If it works, it works - your own perception is very important. When I started exercising (about 3 months ago), I walked 2.5 mph on the treadmill at 0 incline for about 15 minutes - my fit family never acknowledged it, and I don't blame them. I think they were just happy I was moving but they thought the effort was pathetic. I just returned from running a 4k through my neighborhood - just keep at it, whatever you can do!

I am not too sure. But I would think it would! Mine never would sit very long in the stroller once they could walk. I wasn't that active back then. Best of luck to you!

I use walking as my main source of exercise and once lost 60 pounds just by walking 30-45 minutes a day for 4 months, but in August 2011 I had a baby so now I am walking pushing a stroller with a 28lb kid! I just wondered if anyone knows if this helps you get a better workout? Does it maybe help tone the arms at all? I mean, I think it kind of slows me a down a little as far as the cardio part goes, bcuz I have to keep control of the stroller and all...but it seems like pushing that weight would also increase strength or SOMETHING??? Just a-wondering if anyone noticed any difference!
