It's all about walking to keep trim and fit--but it's also fun! Six graded training schedules will take readers from beginner status all the way to long-distance, and even marathon walker. The author also offers expert advice on shoes to match each walker's individual striding profile. She explains that creating a schedule does not mean subjecting oneself to strict regimes or rules, but merely providing realistic goals for safe, effective, and enjoyable exercise. She also suggests a wide array of tips for staying motivated, which includes everything from buying new walking shoes to setting a weight-loss goal. The book is filled with attractive photos and charts that supplement the authors' advice.

This was okay, but I found more information on competitive race walking technique on the internet.
