My 1/2 marathon training has me running 6.5 miles this weekend, longer than I've run in years. That's 1/2 my race length! Because of its length, I'm going to try the run/walk method, which has me running 4 minutes then walking 1 minute. It seems like a lot of watching the clock. If I could run it all, at my average pace, it would take about 58:30, so I'll see how much longer it takes if I walk 20% of it. I'm estimating: walking 16 minutes, running 50 minutes, total 66 minutes. I'm excited to try this new method. . .
More afterward . . .
