When should I take a walk break?
Many runners love walk breaks, and perhaps the biggest proponent of them is uber-coach and former Olympian Jeff Galloway. The key, he says, is to take them early and often, before you even feel gassed. This will help you run longer than you otherwise would have, and it can eliminate aches and pains by reducing the overall stress on your body.
I was wrong about this one! I usually do it when I feel like I need it, but it turns out it should be periodical, even if you’re feeling pretty good!
I saw in my notifications that someone reblogged this from me recently. I’m glad they did, because I needed this reminder myself, haha.
