Running the distance on plan without including walking periods

    I usually do my long runs in the mountains on weekends. This means walking most of the uphills at the moment. I'd still like to be able to run the distance on my plan without including the distance at walking pace. I don't want to be stopping and resuming manually all the time on my watch.

    Does anyone know if this can be set up on the watch (Garmin Forerunner 35) in advance, something like customising the auto-stop for a certain pace? Run/walk more wouldn't work because the distances are not set. Any ideas?

    Thanks!!

    I know it’s not the point, but you still should consider that walking some uphills is still hard work and making you tired, but most of all contributing well to your overall plan. I don’t have that same watch, but on mine I would need to hit the lap button to record different phases of the workout.

    Thanks for the replies. I know about the effort going uphill (I can feel it!). Just wondering if it was possible. My watch only has on/off for auto pause unfortunately.
