Haha, I ran for 15-16 minutes..... Is that all? I hear you say

Ok, so I was bored... bored with listening to my music, bored with Laura, bored with just running with no targets.

Sooo, I went hunting, on iTunes of course to see if there were any more interesting podcasts, and I found a few that looked reasonable, and more to the point, were free :p

Tonight I went out and did a bit of quick HIIT.... ok, so maybe not that quick, but certainly quicker than i've done previously. The podcast timing was 26 minutes, but that included the 5 min warm up and 5 min cool down.

The running involved 1 min at high speed, and the music was quite fast, followed by 4 minutes at slightly??!! slower, repeated 3 times.

I ran just over 3Km and increased my speed over each Km and also increased my average speed :) and best of all, I feel GREAT :)

It may have been a short run, but it was a worthwhile run, and I now have something to work towards improving. That's my Tuesday run sorted, now to find something different for Thursday ;)

  • That sounds good. What was the name of it?

  • Hi rosn123, it's from Motion Traxx and this one was the Quick HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training Mix. I wouldn't say the music was the best but I was more interested in the beat keeping me going, rather than listening to the music.

  • Great, thanks. Will have a look for it.

  • Hi Sharyn, it does sound good. Is it better than the 5k+ speed podcast?

  • Hi Rollertoaster, I don't know, after not getting on with stepping stones I didn't bother with the others :( (I did say I was bored!)

  • That sounds fun ! A bit of variety is good for you :-)

  • Sounds like a great run, well done!

  • Sounds super, I 'm going to have a go too, bfn delia
