One of the wonderful aspects of running is that there is no definition of a “runner” that you must live up to. There are also no rules that you must follow as you do your daily run. You are the captain of your running ship, and it is you who determine how far, how fast, how much you will run, walk, etc. While you will hear many opinions on this, running has always been a freestyle type of activity in which each individual is empowered to mix and match the many variables and come out with the running experience that he or she chooses. Walk breaks can keep the first-time runner away from injury and burnout, and can help veterans to improve their time.
