Thank you so much for the info on the right way to walk. As a former runner who has had to drastically modify my fitness style to reduce impact on my joints since being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, I've turned to walking a lot (and at a fairly steep incline on the treadmill to burn some extra calories). I always thought 1) that walking was just a slower version of running, and 2) that was why I felt like I wanted to run when I get going at higher speeds. I am going to try some of these tips in my next workout. Hopefully they will help, and I won't long to be able to break into a good jog quite so much!
