I have a tendency to walk fast. I’m quite tall so I cover more ground in fewer steps than people who are shorter than me but, add to this the fact that my natural pace is very fast, it doesn’t take me long to get to the places I need to be. Whether I’m walking to work, running to the post office, popping out to buy something for lunch or simply just going for a ‘stroll’ (the definition of a stroll is to walk in a leisurely way so maybe this doesn’t apply to me), I can’t seem to help but walk quickly.
