    Up for a 100 miler, you say?
    Some historical perspective:

      Liked the videos, Frank.

      Thanks for posting.

      Interesting that competitive race walking was once the #2 betting sport in the U.S.

      Race walking is to the 100m dash as harness racing is to horse racing (in terms of the "odd look" of course)?

      Cool

        Have you been experimenting with this?

          Have you been experimenting with this?

           

          Not officially, but sure is seductive.

          Not sure if it would provide more bang-for-the-buck,

          given my cardio limitations.

          One way to find out, I suppose.

          Already use darkness of night as cover. Check!   Cool

          Edit:

          If I wasn't such a slacker, in addition to being hideously data-logging
          averse, an experiment to track progress while racewalk training might
          generate startling insight.
          This could be done similarly to LHR / Maf data charting by more
          dedicated endurance run trainees.

          Hmmm..(full rationalization/questioning mode):

          _Will this racewalk paradigm nullify the need of surgical
          intervention to sculpt a more spacious left ventricle?
          (Or, is it wishful thinking; Desperate procrastination?)

          _A right big toe which has survived multiple bashings into
          stationary objects has adapted to a slow running routine.
          Can it survive more extreme pressures of racewalking?
          Not sure if the use of proper (flexable) racewalking shoes
          would be helpful, or a hinderance. I do understand that very
          forceful toe push-offs are employed by successful steppers.

          _LHR MAF running is barely stomached by my circle of
          mouth-breathing head-scratchers, as is. Can I man-up
          sufficiently and attempt to launch a racewalking routine?
          Provocative, it is. Maybe dressing more modestly and just
          learning to deal with the occasional whistle, catcall is part of
          the learning curve.

            Very welcome. Yes, I never would have guessed that betting stat.

            You posted earlier about race-walkers attaining some mind-boggling

            speeds and it got me curious. Fascinating!
