The other day I was thinking about marathon training, and how the majority of people say you want to build up time on your feet to something like the time you want to do your marathon in (only slower).
I was wondering whether for the slower runners out there, whether starting with a 4 hour walk for the "long run" part of the schedule, for maybe 4 weeks and then adding increasing amounts of running to the end (total time still 4 hours) would be a different (potentially successful) way of doing things?
This is a completely theoretical musing of mine, I have no intention of running a marathon any time soon, but what does everyone think?
