First run/walking

Friday, April 13, 2012

I always like to try what I read about,
so this morning I tried the run/walk method, even if it was only a short run (the same 2.65 miles I ran yesterday in 28:06).
I started slower than usual, focused on quick leg turnover and had 3 short walk breaks, and didn't feel any difference.
Guess what?
I finished in 27:36 today. Interesting.
Not a big surprise though, this is exactly what the book said (walk breaks let you run faster and with better form during the running periods, so overall speed is faster).
Observers might have thought I'm a wimp, but I cannot be a wimp if I'm actually running faster, can I? ; )

Looking forward to try it on my long run on Sunday.
