Day 007 - Take walk breaks

3-4 mile run/walk        Training via ActiveMail

FOR TODAY'S WORKOUT RUN/WALK 3-4 MILES: This regimen is built around the weekly "long run", which will gradually increase in length over the coming weeks. For the first 5 weeks, the long run is actually a long run/walk. Use the exact same pattern you followed earlier in the week: alternate 2-3 minutes of walking with 1-2 minutes of jogging. The difference is that on these "long ones", your goal is a distance rather than a certain period of time. Your goal distance today is 3-4 miles. This may not seem that long; or it may be the longest distance you've run in some time, or ever. Take your time and walk as much as you need to.
