    That is so funny! I think your sort of skipping would be great as an alternative to walking. I think I may try it.

      Sounds like a great exercise to me. It can have the intensity of a sprint if you're skilled at it, plus it has the added bonus of being a bit difficult so you're exercising some different muscles, as well as exercising your brain!

      Skipping with a rope, or skipping like a sprinter warming up... both good I reckon.

      Skipping through a meadow with birds and chipmunks following you is probably best left to Disney characters...
