This was the only way & safest way for me to finish my half-marathon race in 2006. I ran 5/1 which means run for 5 minutes and walk 1 minute. I finished at 2:30 and actually felt great when I crossed the finish line. Highly recommended way of training as well to stay injury free. Will be using the same method for future runs even though I've been running awhile.
I totally understand because if I go to long to fast I want to quit before I get a good work out but it also seems that I am not accomplishing any thing if I don't do that faster run in between the jog
I fair better if I do high low intensity workouts! I mean, if I go high too long, I will quit because I can't seem to catch my breath. If I go too low then its too easy & again I quit the workout. Thanks for reaffirming my mindset!
