The Transition from Walking to Running: How to Curb Your Need for Speed

This article will teach beginning runners how to develop a running program that can take them all the way to a 5K or even a marathon!

For those who have never been active runners, its best to start by increasing the speed of your walk. If you currently walk for 30 minutes each evening, try and walk the same path in a shorter time frame, or increase your distance. Once you've done this, start adding a slow, short jog every ten minutes. The jog should be only 30 seconds to a minute in length, meaning that during your regular 30 minute run, you will run for only 90 seconds to 3 minutes. After your comfortable with this, increase the length of your jog to one minute for every 5 minutes that you walk. Keep your pace slow and steady, and concentrate simply on finishing the workout.

After a few weeks of this, you'll likely be ready to move on. There are two schools of thought on how to progress from here. In the first, you will run steadily, gradually building your distance. In the second, you will alternate running and walking in short intervals over a longer distance.

Method 1 is more appropriate for those who have a goal of completing a 5k or to simply get some exercise. To proceed with this method, we will continue our 30 minute exercise routine. Warm-up with 5 minutes of walking, then run for one mile. After you've finished the mile, continue walking to cool down until you've reached 30 minutes of total exercise. Gradually increase the length of your run and decrease your walk until you are jogging for the entire 30 minute period.

Method 2 is best for those who would like to eventually run a longer race, such as a marathon. Simply start with a 5 minute walk to warm up, then alternate running and walking in timed intervals. Start with 30 seconds of running followed by 5 minutes of walking, then repeat. Gradually increase the time you are running and shorten the time you are walking. For example, after one week of using a 30 second to 5 minute ratio, try a one minute to 5 minute ratio, then progress to 2 minutes of running to 5 minutes of walking. For those attempting to complete a marathon, a one minute run followed by a three minute walk is pretty standard. As you progress, alternating one minute of running with one minute of walking will help you finish faster.

Using these methods, I was able to complete my first marathon last January. Throughout the race, I maintained a one minute run followed by a one minute walk. After that race, I began running two minutes for every minute I walked, gradually increasing my running until I could run consistently for 13 miles. I hope to complete the same marathon this January, except I'd like to run the entire distance.

The methods I've described here are based on concepts by running guru Jeff Galloway. See his website at for more information.
