    Did intervals this morning--Just sprinting the straights on the track and jogging the curves. Felt pretty good (well, except the alst few sprints), but it was the first time I really pushed it, speedwise, in months. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.

    3 today. Had an interesting find, a small purse with a Bible, hymnal guide, and crayons. Left it hanging on a nearby sign. If you lost this, contact me[​IMG]

    Will see if it's there tomorrow.

    5k every day for the past couple weeks, coming in at around 22 minutes each...if my stomach's feeling brave I'll mix it up with 20 minutes of HIIT. My knees are starting to feel it so it might be time to replace my 1.5-year-old Mizuno Wave Inspires. I've gotta step up my game in lieu of this thread...

    Those who are doing HIIT running, are you seeing any better results from it then just standard jogging or running?

    yep, but then again my goal is to maintain as much muscle as possible. But if you are just trying to lose "weight" in general, then running will do the trick.

    I just stopped bulking and started cutting so I can see my abs, so i'm trying to lose some belly fat. Everyday I walk or run 6 miles , but it has pretty much been at a steady pace. I will switch it up and give that running style a try.

    HIIT is worse than steady state cardio for preserving muscle. HIIT is pretty fucking gay, actually.

    im not really training for anything in particular.. just run because i enjoy it... but basically i like to be able to stay in decent half-marathon shape year round.

    today: 3 miles in 17:06, 1 mile in 6:00, 2 x 0.5 mi. in 2:30 each, then 1 mile in 6:15, with a couple minutes (untimed, so not sure how long actually) rest in between each.

    Wow like i've said before im glad to see this thread take off so well [​IMG] Its been giving me motivation also, and some great advice for running! It's great to know so many people on these forums have so much experience and knowledge to share [​IMG]
    I did another 3 miles yesterday, went out and bought some nice running shoes (Asics Gel-Nimbus 9, In a wicked Gold/Silver colorway [​IMG]) Ran with them right out the box, super comfy! although my left foot did blister due to a lack of arch support (my right foot was fine, wierd [​IMG] ) Just bought some new insoles, They should be good to go, even comfier now!
    I actually want to buy a pedometer/timer/heart rate monitor, i saw some nice running watches that had all these features, i dont want something bulky... any reccomendations? just got in so i didn't get to do any reasearch, but ill google after i post, just thought id throw it up there lol
