Power walking stuff, discipline and daily routines / Johnson´s dictionary online

I am reading a handbook on walking for fitness these days. Here it it the reference: Jerald D. Hawkins and Sandra M. Hawkins. Walking for Fun and Fitness. Wadsworth, Belmont (California), 2011. 

In the introductory pages-page 7- it says: 

Power walking has been compared to cross-country skiing without the skis. While done at the same pace as fitness walking (3 to 6 miles per hour), power walking enthusiasts intensify the effects of the exercise by using exaggerated arm swing and hand weights or other external props, or both.’

Therefore, I have been thinking about my power walking stuff. Basically, I wear running shoes, ankle socks, pants / tights, 2 T-shirts, and a cap to protect my head from the sun heat as well as walk incognito. I also wear a digital watch, keys and a face mask (whenever I happen to come across anyone during my 50 minute-walk). Now, from my readings on handbooks about Power Walking I am going to carry a pair of small dumbbells (0.5 kgs each) with me. It is important to be conscious of your arms while you walk. In fact, self-awareness of your whole self is important.

The best hour of the day in my daily schedule is around 3:30 p.m. Frequency walk, 5 or 6 days a week.
