Run for 2 mins walk for 1 minute. Gets you to distance with lower impact on your body and first impression is it seems to work. Took Rico with me which gave him more time for sniffing. 8.46k in 1hr 8 mins including warm up and down. Not too bad for a start of year run. Recovery time much lower than that distance would normally incur but then again average heart rate was lower. I feel good.
Happy Running all
