That's food for thought, thank you. I'll try both of your suggestions and see how it feels.

KARENBROWN6, there are as you can imagine a nearly endless combination of run / walk ratios. The best advice I can give you is try some different ones out during a training run (wouldn't recommend trying to figure it out during a race, although I pretty much stumbled into run/walk during a race!). My present run/walk ratio is 45 seconds run / 15 seconds walk. I just did a 13.25 mile training run on Sunday and covered the distance in 2:25. I have a HM coming up on 4/3 and aiming to break the 2:20 mark!

If you are interested in using Jeff's methods, use much shorter and more frequent walk breaks. He says that after about a minute of walking, you won't get much additional benefit from a longer walk break. 10 minutes running, 10 minutes walking is a 1/1 ratio. I suggest that you try 1 minute running, 1 minute walking instead. That's the same total amount of running and walking over the course of the run as 10/10 and much better for your knees.

I have been running for a few years and although I have done a few half marathons I am having problems with my knees. This stems back to playing badminton for 40 years so I am looking for a way to keep increasing my distance without causing any more damage. The Jeff Galloway method looks ideal so I thought I would give it a shot.
Taking walk breaks before I am tired is going to be odd but it does make sense.
I am planning a 10 mile walk/run on Sunday to see how it feels.
I thought 10mins run, 10mins walk etc.?
