It is hard to believe but thousands of runners have improved their times by taking walk breaks.

Running continuously causes the muscles to fatigue more rapidly, primarily because the muscles must be used lap after lap, or mile after mile – without relief. If you break the cycle of continuous use by walking early enough, you allow the muscles to rebound, so that they can go farther or faster at the end. This process gives you an extraordinary degree of control over the amount of fatigue you put on your legs.
