:) for some reason when I read that I thought Dog walking was an exercise that you did, other than actually walking a dog.

Sorry, I'm out of it. Imagining you walking like a dog is still funny though.

Do race walkers log everything as easy, since it's only walking? Is there such a thing as vo2 max walking?

I always want to jump in on the race walkers jokes, but my 20k pace is pretty much equivalent with the current world record.
