My kids have been on half term so exercise has been almost impossible. As a solution I thought that short busts might be a quick way to use my limited time effectively. (My Parkrun is quite hilly so I thought this might help).
I live on top of a hill. It is about 0.5 k from bottom to top.
I decided I just HAD to run up the hill. Twice.
I did this on Sunday. I did this on Tuesday. I did it today (Thursday).
Sun: 3.28. 3.20. Tues: 3.16. 3.24 Thurs: run one didn't register, 3.21.
Elevation gain 28 m.
I am feeling pretty marvelous. But am I being effective?????? Is this a good use of my time? I do feel nearly dead at the end of run 2, and the neighbours think I am crazy.
I have done a little reading and it looks like 90 second bursts are good. Will what I am doing help?
I am, I guess, looking to improve my Parkrun times - 5k on a hilly terrain.
I am not obsessed. No, not at all.
Thank you all in advance for your help and comments.
