I'm not a beginner runner as such but I'm posting this here because I don't want to be ridiculed elsewhere for mentioning the "walk" word . I'm interested in hearing from anyone who uses the Run Walk Run method by Jeff Galloway as I'm probably going to need to embrace some form or run-walk strategy for some of the races I've got in mind for next year. So, does it reduce injuries, make recovery easier and also give a similar finish time? My only experience to date is doing a 5K with 1 min hard effort, 1 min walk and discovering that I could get round my usual 5K route faster than just running. But, I'm not convinced that it prevents injuries - it felt more like speedwork in disguise for me!
