I started the day out with an 8-1/2 mile run. 

I have been doing similar length runs for the last three weeks and wanted some variety today so instead of doing this run with the 5 minutes Z1, 50 minute Z2-Z3, 5 minutes Z1 that were subscribed in the work out I ran for 6-1/2 (Z3) then walked for 30 seconds.  This is the Jeff Galloway run-walk-run ratios for the speed that I hit on my Z2-Z3 runs.  Jeff Gallow affirms that by walking for 30 seconds every mile that I will have a faster overall pace at the end of the run than if I run the whole time.  I need to do a lot more of this type of running to convince myself.  Right now I am feeling that running at a 7:10 Pace for 50 minutes is easier than running at a 6:40 pace than walking for 30 seconds.  Once I stop to walk it is 10 times harder to start running again that it would have been to just not stop in the first place.  So...Not 100% sold on the run-walk-run but it is doing something for lots of people and I am trying to figure out what it is solving for them.  At any rate I had a different work out than what I have done for the last 3 weeks so I am happy with that.

5.5 mile run this evening. Steady Z2 work, no lingering soreness from the half marathon I raced Saturday.

I had a similar experience with the Galloway method. I found that towards the end of a long run, my legs didn’t want to start running again. I modified it some so that I would walk through the aid stations during a marathon and had good results with that.
