I am using his methods second hand. My friend joined a group and is using the Galloway method to train for a marathon. The training pace is something that she had calculated out by her running group something based on how fast she ran a mile or the last 5K race time. I am not really using a training pace, just one or two days a week I really push myself the other days I do easier runs. So far my speed and distance has really picked up.

I don't understand what "training" pace is. Anybody?
From his website:
Run-walk-run ratio should correspond to the training pace used: 8 min/miórun 4 min/walk 35 seconds 9 min/mió 4 min run-1 min walk 10 min/mió-3:1 11 min/mió2:30-1 12 min/mió-2:1 13 min/mió-1:1 14 min/mió30 sec run/30 sec walk 15 min/mió30 sec/45 sec 16 min/mió30 sec/60 sec
I've just finished my last run on Week 1 of the Galloway 5k training program. It was only 1 mile today. Easy Peasy! Next week, it's the same thing all over again. It will be two 10-15 minute runs and one 1 mile run. Galloway's program is great because it is so gentle.
Yes that helps! Thank you very much. I figured I was missing something but I've been running around in circles lately with some unexpected things happening and not studying it as closely as I probably should have. Thanks again. I will look at all those links tomorrow when I have more time!

I went to the Jeff Galloway site but although looking quickly twice I didn't see any info on how to do his method other than signing up for the training of which none are in my area....so is there a book???
