Outside Magazine website highlighted recent studies published in the
Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research that show passive-resting activities like walking can reduce heart rates in as few as 25 seconds. Even better, they can lead to better performance in subsequent legs of your run, allowing you to gain more ground than if you’d pounded along the whole time with no breaks.

When you arrive at the finish line of a any race that involves running (road, trail, triathlon, obstacle), no one asks how you got there.  The only measurement of your performance is your finish time.  If taking walk breaks lowers your heart rate, allowing you to run stronger and faster, then why not?

Swim workout:
200yds. reverse IM
100yds. swim choice
100yds. kick choice


4x(50yds. free + 25yds. choice)
the free is progressive + 10sec. rest
the choice is fast


4x(4x100yds.)
start with 20sec. rest for 1st round and reduce rest by 5sec. for each subsequent round + 100yds. easy after each round

A continuous run for almost an hour isn't a healthy a practice, right? This is the reason why it's important for someone to take a rest if he joins marathon. Unlike people's perception, giving time to walk will give you more chance of finishing a marathon faster compare to those who are not taking a rest. By the way, I want to thank you for this post. This one is truly educational!

    I have spent the last 30 years helping individuals to their goals, whether it be crossing a finish line with a PR, eating better or, simply finding the 20 minutes daily they desire to exercise.
