Yesterday I broached a bit of a controversial subject as I started discussing the “W” word. “W” as in walking.
To some runners, walking during a race is no big deal and even a good thing. Others, however, might consider it a sign of running inadequacy.
I ended yesterday’s post with a “Check in tomorrow,” as I teased that walking can actually make you a faster runner.
You heard me right. Walking can indeed help you improve your race times. And this is no internet hocus-pocus where they promise results if you do exactly the opposite of what makes sense.
How can you get faster by going slower?
The answer is simple… employ a run/walk ratio.
