Welles Park Run/Walk and a New Marathon Strategy

I tested my new marathon strategy today.  Run 4 minutes take a 35 second walk.  I am shooting for an 8min pace.  This is from Jeff Galloway's run/walk marathon plan.  According to Galloway:

"Most runners will record significantly faster times when they take walk breaks because they don't slow down at the end of a long run."

That's good enough for me.  The advantage seems to be compounded if the breaks are taken earlier, rather than later.

Welles Park morning run/walk:  2.4 miles total.
