step to any fitness program is to evaluate WHY you
are doing it. Unless you are motivated, you will
not stick with it. Racewalking is not a magic bullet
which will make you fit without time and effort. Even if your
goal is just basic fitness, if you haven't made
time to walk several times a week already, why
will this change after you learn to racewalk? What
will you do differently from today on to reap the
rewards and benefits of being fit?
intentions are fine, but it will take good actions
to become and stay fit. There is not much better
use of your time than the few hours a week it takes
to become fit. The good news is, however, that you
do not have to exactly follow all the rules of racewalking
just to walk faster. If you are not planning to
compete, then just approximate the form and your
daily walking speed and thus your fitness will increase.
