I've just read the article on the website titled "Why run/walk really works". Previously I've always had the attitude that I need to run all my training runs and races, and that anything else is a form of wimping out. Now the guy (Amby Burfoot) who wrote the article and advocates run/walk is a former winner of the Boston Marathon, and as such demands respect. So now I'm thinking I should at least try his method once - maybe for my long effort this weekend.
He does say that run/walk might not suit everyone, but suggests that it should be given a chance. I think I'll try 9/1 (9 mins running, 1 min walking) for 2 hours and see if I feel any different at the end.
Has anyone else experimented or been converted to this method?
