You asked my speed on the run/walk ratios. I have my Garmin, a Forerunner 10, for average pace. It will display either current pace or average pace, but not both. Some of the newer and better models will give both. So I don't really know my run/walk paces I just know the overall. I'm aiming for 11 minutes per mile; it will take 11:04.12 per mile or better to get to the 2:25. My PR is 26:26:06, so 11:08 will give me a PR, but I'm hoping not to be that close. I tend to slow in the last miles, although the idea of negative splits appeals to me, I haven't been able to do that. I would guess my running pace is 9:30-10 min per mile and my walking pace is 13-15 min per mile. So if I'm feelling good on Sunday I'll go for the PR; if I'm just not feeling it, I'll go for a finish and be content!
Good luck with your training. -Marsha
Edit: You asked about "going all out." I'd say if you are run-walking a 5K you definitely go all out on the run. For a half marathon, no. Hold back some. My best magic mile ever was 8:47. Now days about 9:20 is a good mile for me. So 9:45 is doable for a HM. 96 days ago
