Running, Walking, and Training

Over breakfast on Sunday, some of us talked about training for marathons and smaller races to run. In The New York Times, this morning, I found this article which talks about taking walking breaks during runs. This practice bestows many benefits: it enables many different types of people to enjoy the sport (the less fit, the older, the overweight, those who are prone to injuries), and it keeps more people injury free. Even seasoned runners can find their way to times that are their personal best.

For those committed to walking, doing the reverse might also be helpful. You might try brief bursts of jogging (a minute or two). This practice can help us keep up our walking speeds and can keep our walking interesting.

During our walk on Sunday, some of us talked about Jeff Galloway, one of the pioneers of running with walking breaks. He has a website here where you can get all sorts of information and link to his blog.
