from what I'd imagined.

5. "Scout's Pace"

From the New York Times by way of the googles:

Run, Walk, Run (dated 8 June 2009) :: To the Editor:

I read “Better Running Through Walking” (Well, June 2) and remembered a requirement for advancement in the Boy Scouts handbook, 60-odd years ago. This was a technique called Scout’s Pace. It was designed to sustain a steady pace of five miles per hour without tiring. You ran 25 or 50 steps running at a trot and then 25 or 50 paces walking. The system worked then, and this similar system seems to work now. What goes around, comes around. (by Ronald B. Berggren, M.D. of Galena, Ohio)

8. I Do Not Know, Butt...

I surmise you proceed-along in that 'run-walk-run' format from where you begin to where you end.

Now Laura (will you please) PourMeADrink.

9. I Don't Recall Any Set Distances....

One used this pace to get somewhere quickly without getting exhausted. It is somewhere between jogging and walking.
