The run-walk method is nothing new to running, and a lot of its notoriety can be credited to legendary running coach Jeff Galloway. However, I struggled to find not only the scientific reasoning behind the run-walk method but also any data on runners going under 3 hours using this method. Personally, I have successfully used the run-walk method to run a 2:55 marathon the day after riding 190km as part of my build-up for Ironman. After that experience, the seed was planted for this experiment.
