Ron Laird, one of the most decorated race walkers in history, provides a guide to mastering this highly efficient, low-impact exercise. In fact, a strong race walker can outpace an average runner, and do so with much less stress on the legs and knees. Clear text and easy-to-read, step-by-step illustrations and photos show every nuance of the hip, leg, arm, foot, and torso movements that must be co-ordinated to achieve correct form.The walk was the last event on the program that evening. I entered it out of curiosity and the desire for some more physical activity. I had only a few minutes to learn the basics of how to do it by watching some others as they warmed up.
