Jeff's quest for the injury-free
marathon training program led him to develop group training
programs in 1978, and to author Runner's World articles
which have been used by hundreds of thousands of runners
of all abilities. His training schedules have inspired
the second wave of marathoners who follow the Galloway
RUN-WALK-RUN™, low mileage, three-day, suggestions
to an over 98% success rate.
Jeff has worked with over 300,000 average people in
training for specific goals and is the inventor of the
Galloway RUN-WALK-RUN™ method. Jeff is an inspirational
speaker to over 200 running and fitness sessions each
His innovative ideas have opened up the possibility
of running and completing a marathon to almost everyone.
Philosophically, Jeff believes that we were all designed
to run and walk, and he keeps finding ways to bring
more people into the positive world of exercise...

Tips from Jeff
Almost everyone has at least one "bad"
You may never be able to discover why, but if you know,
learn! The tough ones teach you that you have hidden
inner strengths, which you can draw upon in future challenges,
both in training and in life itself. This will particularly
help your confidence and your ability to withstand adversity
in the race itself.
Where is the Wall?
Your wall is normally the length of your longest endurance
session within the last two to three weeks, provided
you are going at the pace you could on that day. Even
a little too fast in the beginning will introduce you
to the wall sooner. On a hot, humid day, you'll bump
into that wall before you should-if you don't slow your
pace down even more than normal from the beginning.
Even those who have missed a long one in the marathon
schedule have been able to do the next long one by slowing
down to at least three minutes per mile slower than
they could run and by taking walk breaks much more frequently.
The more conservative you are, in pace, from the beginning,
the more you can push your wall back farther and farther
with little risk of fatigue or injury.
