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.

Yeap... He means walk/running for that amount of time. The ratio of walk/running is dependent on your speed. Here are is recommendations.

I also have a q about his training schedule. On the days where he says to run for 10-15 minutes, does he mean do the run/walk interval thing? Or just run?

For example, I'm looking at his 5k training schedule found here:

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.

I'm using a 1:1 minute walk/run ratio.

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!

Many libraries have Galloway books. His site actually has a lot of information on it. www.jeffgalloway.com/training/index.

If you look on the left side of the site, there are many links to training schedules for various length races. For instance, this is the link for training for a 5k.

Here's a link to the basic philosophy of walk breaks and how long they should be depending on your pace.

There is also a Jeff Galloway Training for Any Length Race team that has many Galloway runners who can provide answers to your questions.

Hope that helps.
