Use "Walking" To Tame Marathon
Believe it or not, walking may be your savior in an upcoming marathon.
I have not experimented with this approach, but many of my friends have told me how they have used walking strategies, not only to reduce the risk of injury, but to lower their times!
Check out this post from Jeff Galloway's blog - http://ow.ly/1r08l. He discusses how some of his clients have used walk/run ratio strategies to lower their overall times.
It's certainly worth exploring if you're interested in lowering your time in the marathon event or just wanting to participate in one and lower the risks for pain.
