Interval training update [Aug. 30th, 2011|07:30 pm]
John
Today, I did ten intervals, 35 seconds each (55 seconds of rest). I've been feeling mostly good today, but I'm a tiny bit headache-y and tired now (after doing about 20 minutes of walking, later in the day).

Earlier this month, I probably would have felt crappy all day from just the interval training. So, my heart is definitely getting stronger, and quickly.

As a side benefit, I'm also exercising the foot, leg, and hip muscles I need to exercise if I want to be able to run (and I do)... even though I'm running just a bit over 5 minutes, I am running, and that's enough to give the muscles a bit of a workout.

Where did you find your interval routine or how did you devise it?
