Yup - definitely a fast walker.

Always hated either slow moving people or being stuck behind someone. Even worse, when someone's behind you, too. Can't move forward, can't move back. This is why I can't do supermarkets - or if I have to, I really have to keep a lid on myself. :lol:

I am an unusually fast walker.

It makes me very frustrated and stressed when I'm stuck behind slow-walkers. In the middle of a crowded hallway. On my way to class. I just want to scream, "HELLOOOO, Quit blocking my way so I can actually get to class ON TIME!"

I remember once, I was walking fast on grass next to the sidewalk, so I could pass by and avoid the slow-walkers on the sidewalk. Well, this one group of obnoxious girls decided to spread out over the grass and the sidewalk so that I couldn't pass them without stepping onto the street! (It was a very busy street.) And they were laughing. Well, I built up the nerve and courage to just plow through the group and keep on walking. That left them shocked. Ha! :lol:

I have always been a very fast walker.

If there's somewhere to get to - GET THERE. Even shopping I walk fast, much to the ire of my shorter wife. She can't walk quite as fast as I do, even if I'm walking at a slower pace. If I'm out walking for the exercize, I'm hell on two feet. But if I'm out in the country, like trying to walk on a trail, I attempt to slow down but it doesn't work really.

I am a fast walker, despite having very short legs. People have told me that I look as though I am marching along sometimes.

I walk fast. This stems from wanting to get away from something quickly (ie school), but not wanting to be seen to run, which invites further ridicule and abuse.

I walk very quickly even when I have no where to go.

Oh man, I can't believe this is a trait. Yes, I walk fast and far and had a severe movement issue.

I would have to run 2 hours, and then walk one hour right after every single day. That's three hours of intense movement every day.

It could snow, sleet, rain, tornado, whatever. I've almost got struck twice, collapsed in a heap in a torrent of subzero rain (but kept going) and was a general maniac. I would have to scehdule school and around this. It came first. No vacation unless I had a running route already planned out.

In Wal-Mart Iam almost always pegging people and mad as hell when they PARK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE AISLE.

Starting last year I began to slow down and it sucks. I can do like 2 hours of walking. Harldy run anymore, but I wish I could. But I cannot sit still.

I know that there are people on here who will believe me when I say this. I am very mercury sensitive. When I had an amalgem filling removed, that is when I started having trouble keeping up this pace.

So, yes, I have this too. But it can be a good thing. My ex boyfriend was a very happy man. :-D Also it sure keeps you in shape. And saves on gas!

Ciao.


I had a similar thing, although slightly less extreme - I would have to walk at least 4 miles a day. I remember once going on holiday with my family, driving most of the day across france, and as soon as we stopped I rushed out the car and started walking randomly in any direction, just to try and get my 4 miles in. Like you my day revolved around the walking, and I would get terribly restless if I had to sit still for long, even if I had already filled up my walking 'quota' for that day.

I'm a fast walker and have always been told to slow down by people walking with me. Is this a recognized Aspie trait? - sure looks like it could be.

I am a fast walker myself. Running I've done a few times, but it's not my thing, though I do bike a lot. I also "run" up stairs sometimes too.

Sometimes I'll walk along and instead of slowing down to wait for other people, I try to walk around them, but sometimes I might interfere with another person's invisible "personal space"

I also do that. Like when I walk my dog, i go faster than anyone else would on the same trail.

And so I finish in less time. So they think I did less walking then they would do.

I've always been a fast walker, and I get really frustrated if I have to slow down.

I'm not fast, everyone else is incredibly slow.

I've been told that I'm a really fast walker, but to me its just walking. I've noticed that I often start to leave people behind and then I have to slow down.

I've developed a theory involving five types of walking

Dawdle: This involves someone wlaking in the slowest manner and being left behind by all others. People who do this often are usually told to move faster, although this is their normal mode of locomotion.

Saunter: The saunter. One of the most irritating methods of walking because it varies speed from slower to a dawdle to just faster than it.

Stroll: The third type of walk is only marginally faster than the saunter at its best. In most cases, this is not the persons usual mode of locomotion. The stroll is often used by people when they are "enjoying the scenery."

"Walk": The "walk" is the most commonly used method of locomotion. This is towards the faster end of the spectrum but is not near the stride, in terms of speed. Used mainly when a person has somewhere to go and do not wish to be disturbed.

Stride: This walking style is one of the fastest around. Used when someone needs to hurry to wherever they wish to go, it allows a person to move relatively unhindered.

"Gear change:" This is the fastest style of walking. In this style the walker's movements become much smoother, and the speed increases greatly from the stride. This style of walking will quickly outpace any other walker and can even be faster than some joggers.

My walking style tends to alternate between the stride and "Gear change." Note that the ger change is a personal style that I have noticed. Normally my movements are somewhat jerky, but when I "put my legs into gear" (as I call it) they smooth out and I move much faster.
