Americano (with room for cream) or Latte?

In between all the other stuff I have going, I’ve been flipping through this book, Marathoning for Mortals, the book that Tim picked for us as a guide to marathon-prep.  I had no intention of running anything (except maybe a hot bath) when I walked into that meeting last night, but after flipping through this book, and reading that I can:

A: Run a Marathon, or

B: Walk a Marathon, or

C: Run a Half-Marathon or,

D: Walk a Half-Marathon, or

E: Alternate Running and Walking or

F: Alternate Walking and Running either a full or a half-marathon

And that there are training plans for all of those options, I am now going back and forth between alternating running and walking a half marathon, or walking and running a half marathon.

I know it sounds like basically the same thing, but it’s not. Not really.  Mostly run with a little walking thrown in?  Or mostly walk with a little running thrown in?

It’s like the difference between an Americano with room for cream, or a latte.

So what does a girl whose currently on Caffix and green juice do?  (Besides go out and buy running shoes and a pile of sports bras?)

  1. I think you should challenge yourself. You’ve already proven yourself to be a powerful, consistent walker. But you haven’t run for years. So I’d choose option E. Americano with room for cream.


  2. Excellent Article!

    If I could write like this I would be well chuffed 😉

    The more I read articles of such quality as this (which is rare), the more I think there might be a future for the Web. Keep it up, as it were.
