weighted walking to give credit where its due
To watching the contest of walking, for me personally, is quite painful. It seems like unnaturally forcing a motion that just should be running. What if contestants had to wear backpacks of a weight that would make running energetically costly. It would just make more sense, a worthy achievement.
