Answer:

According to several surveys, those who used to run continuously in marathons improved an average of more than 13 minutes when they shifted to my run-walk-run method. By taking the walks early, the muscles stay strong and are ready for the challenge later. Because the walk breaks erase most of the fatigue, you don’t slow down during the last 6-8 miles in the marathon, and many of our folks increase pace at the end. So instead of slowing down 9-15 minutes during the last 8 miles, walk breakers stay on pace or speed up. By using the method, you can be the one who is passing people at the end, celebrating afterward.
