The answer to - how can my wife and I run and walk together. She likes walking (while I don't) - and she won't run!!
So - today we went out together and came home together- we "exercised" for 52 minutes together - she walked 4 Klms and I did 6.
How did we do it? -- We started walking together and when we got to the end of our road, I started to run ahead of her and ran about 150 metres ( about 1 minute) . I concentrated on "good form" and did not hold myself back too much - then I stopped and walked back to her ( about half a minute ) and continued to walk with her ( another half minute) -- then repeated it all over again for the next 50 minutes!!
It has also killed another bird with one stone for me - I want to run easy at a low HR of around 120 , but find that I cannot get down this low when running continuously without sacrificing good running form - my "running " at such a low HR is more like "shuffling". But by running 1 minute/walking one minute , I can keep average HR down to 120 and feel like I could do this for many miles!!!
This is good!!
