Planned walking breaks during marathon races?

    I hear conflicting views, and my own experiences (one marathon where I took them and one marathon where I didn't) are inconclusive because there was such a difference in the courses of those two races. I've been lately doing long runs without walking breaks and feel good about it but not sure what to do when I get to the longest training runs later in my prep in the coming weeks.

    Nobody said you have to RUN the entire race. I usually take a 500 meters walking break each 5 or 6 km to catch my breath... Of course, I'm not trying to break any speed record.
