I think I am liking the whole run walk thing.
Yesterday I managed to do 9.75miles and felt really great.
I did 2' walking 3' running for 10 intervals (keeping an 11' pace which is not that much slower than my typical long run pace) and by that point I was nearly five miles out!
I turned around then and switched to 3'walk and 2' run for the way back.
It wasn't the fastest but it was further than my untrained booty could've done and I really felt good.
I also think it is helping me feel and realize the difference between walking and running which is bigger than I once thought.
is it possible to need different shoes for walking than for running? I don't have a history of heel discomfort in my shoes but all this walking feels so hard on my feet and heels especially.
On my (stupidly long) to do list is going to a shoe shop to get pro advice.
