    Hi Rob,

    Nice improvement in your speed. Can’t remember if I asked you before. Do you only walk on a track, alternatives, especially the long walk(? Also, do you just walk faster, or is there some do? I have.signed up for Tim’s 6hr Coburg. Guess it will be not so good,. as I promised my son to walk.during the night from Friday to Saturday in there Relay for life, which is a fund raiser for cancer research.

      Thanks Albin. I do all my training on the road around my home. The circle drive is all oiled and rock chipped. 8 tenths of a mile long. I use a method I call progressive overload for my speed training. I walk by feel. When I feel strong I walk faster and faster. When I feel tired a hold back. It has worked well for me in the past. It is always a good idea to listen to ones own body. Glad to hear you are walking. Best of luck with what ever walk you do. Rob
