    And someone said the speed you run doesnt have much affect on the calories consumed but didnt really specify relative to what. Relative to distance, no, its roughtly the same calories burned per mile, but if you run for an hour at say 10mph vs. an hour at 6 mph you burn alot more running faster. Your statement seemed to imply that running for a specified time will burn the same amount of calories regardless of speed, which isnt right.


    Yes, that was me. I was not sufficiently precise. I meant that the calorie burn of a mile run in 10 minutes and one run in 8 minutes, for example, is not significant.

    I was under the impression that much of the calorie burn came later in the day due to an increased metabolism resulting from the cardiovascular activity.

    In other words, a 15-20 minute HIIT session in the morning will burn the same amount of calories or more as a 45 minute 65% of heart rate slow cardio session due to post-workout effects.

    Not even close.

    EPOC (which you're referring to) is dependent upon intensity and duration. HIIT still has more EPOC than SS cardio, but it's in the realm of low single-digit percentages (like 3-5%).

    That's pretty miniscule.

    Hey guys, this is a mileage thread. Perhaps a new thread could be started to discuss this topic.

    About 5km. Pretty damn hot, but at least there was a breeze.

    What's the point of ab work-outs anyway? Aren't the hip-flexors a more useful muscle than the abs?

    Depends what you need your muscles for, really. Strength athletes probably consider the abdominals much more important, whereas marathon runners may consider the hip flexors more important.

    6.2 miles for me - London 'Great Capital Run' 10k.
    A new personal best for me, 58'08" was 4020th of around 8000.

    Always sounds less impressive when you look at the elite guys up front - the guy who finished in second place did 29'04" which was exactly half my time...

    I managed to run about half a mile according to the treadmill.

    That was a few weeks ago so I might get into running again for the hell of i.t

    Went a bit lame (sore heel) on Friday -- took the weekend off and walked the 5km today. Will walk again tomorrow and try running at my touch football game tomorrow night.
