Power walking?

You know,

I always thought power walking was just simply walking really fast. I've always considered myself a "power walker" because I can walk faster than most people (perhaps it's because my legs ar 10-feet long:smileyhappy:.

Anyway, I saw a lady "power walking" the other day in a 5K race. That got me to thinking...

Does power walking have some type of special technique? What is true power walking?

hahahaha-I always thought I was pretty fast at walking until I got to the park a couple of weeks ago and passed an older couple who were walking faster than the joggers even. I was so impressed with them!
