When the team behind Olympian Jeff Galloway contacted me about posting a series of videos on his Run-Walk-Run Method, I got excited. The timing just seems so perfect since I’m coming back from my injury and am using the run-walk idea.
This isn’t the first time I’ve used walking and running together. Last spring, Jill and I ran five minutes and walked one for 15 miles. It’s a great way to break up a long run. Check out Jeff’s video below or head to his Web site here for more info on the method.
I’m off run-walk-running my (birthday) 10K this morning and will have a race report up on Wednesday. Hope everyone has a great running week!
Here’s what the Jeff Galloway team has to say about the Run – Walk – Run Method: “The Jeff Galloway Run – Walk – Run method has helped thousands of runners get started. By alternating running with walking you conserve energy, reduce fatigue, reduce injuries and run farther. How fast do you need to run and walk? Once you decide your minute per mile goal, you adjust your run – walk pace accordingly. Let’s get training.”
