Run/walk intervals are a topic I’ve covered here on the podcast numerous times in-depth, but I’m busting some myths about it today. So many people, especially non-runners, believe that run/walk intervals are just a starter plan that you’ll do in the beginning as you work towards getting stronger and faster. But friends, this is not the case.
This strategy is one that is amazing for all runners at all levels, whether you’re a beginner or an Olympian, and I’m inviting you today to integrate and master it if your plan is to run long-term. I’ve personally adopted it into my routine, and I’m sharing the results that I’ve gotten since using it on longer runs 10 years later.
Join me today as I outline why you need to use this game-changing strategy and some ways that you can play around with it. It doesn’t have to be a boring ratio that you do on every single run, and I’m sharing some ways that I switch it up, depending on the length of my runs and how I’m feeling that day.
Don’t forget to sign up for the Rebel Runner Roadmap! This is the last class we’ll be running this summer, so this is your last chance to get in before doors close on the 28th of June 2020.
