I am a walker and I've been a power walker for years and years. I've started running programs multiple times and I am not a runner and do NOT want to give up walking. I realized that I need to make a change and adding running seemed like the best approach. Adding intervals now seems like the best approach because I can never get all the benefits from either just walking or just running.
I have located a variety of plans for new runners. Which plan is more likely to help me get a faster pace for a 5K at the end of the month? Emphasize gradually increasing running intervals? Emphasize shorter walking intervals? Yes, I know that ultimately the ideal is a combination of both but where to start to see quick results?
