How can I politely bow out? Everyday, I take a speed walk. I usually go at a clip of 3 mph..but, I am pulling a wagon with Samara. The neighborhood ladies today decided to corner me and ask if I would join an exercise group. That would be fine and dandy but they walk to slow. There is no way they can keep up with me and I can't go at their pace and reap any benefits. One of them walked with me today and couldn't keep up and she was not pulling a wagon with 45 lbs of toddler in it. I walk fast pulling Samara for cardio. They can't do it even without pulling anything. So, I have to think of something nice to say not to hurt their feelings. In no way am I willing to tone down my workout. I can't be mean to them, but they just can't keep up the pace I do and with my limited time, I have to make it work.
