So I walked my first half back in April (3:48:15) --with an ankle injury. Now, I'm gearing up to train for my second half (after giving my ankle about a month to heal completely), and I know for a fact my next half has a course limit of 3.5 hours. So I have to shave off quite a bit of time off my first half's time--I'm aiming to get half an hour off April's time. The course will be comparable to the half I got the 3:48 on (that is, flat), so that's not an issue.
I'm not in good enough shape right now to attempt jogging intervals, but I'm wondering if brisk walking intervals would be enough to get my time down. My question is, what is an ideal time on/time off interval to do when walking? I'm thinking one minute fast, two minutes recovery, but I don't know if that's enough to get my time down and my fitness up.
Anyone have any advice for me? I know there are quite a few walkers here, so I'm hoping y'all can weigh in. :) Thanks!
