Kenyan shuffle
 n.— «My first word of advice then was to start out slow. “Painfully slow,” I said, and by this I meant running well within ourselves. Nothing will ruin the prospect of an accomplished run more effectively than starting out too fast. This goes for all levels of fitness, but especially for anyone just starting back. Even the Kenyans start out painfully slow on their morning runs, a practice known as the “Kenyan shuffle.”» —“Running is not just as simple as you thought” by Ian O’Riordan Irish Times Jan. 3, 2009.
