Defining my own style of walking

I think about this everyday when I’m walking…

I’m not really sure what you would call my walking style? Its a mixture of my own freestyle incorporated with the basics elements of racewalking. I use all of the racewalking techniques such as proper foot placement and strike, hip motion and leg transitioning, but I dont really accentuate the arm swings nor am I physically able to keep up the extreme paces that are required for competitive racewalking.

One of the reasons of course, is that I have don’t have the lungs for it. It would actually be easier for me to run a certain distance than to racewalk it. The other reason is that I prefer the longer distances. I guess you might say that I’m a fast walker with good technique or a very slow racewalker? I wish I could have a walking specialist give me there opinion.
