I have switched from all long distance running to H.I.I.T and I love it but looking for some guidance on a couple of things. I always get conflicting info on Internet.
1) Is running (outside) at a pace that is comparable to 6mph on the treadmill for 10 minutes and then sprinting for 30 seconds (10-12mph), running 6mph for 90 seconds and doing that 6-8x, considered HIIT?
2) Next is how much is too much... How often can I do H.I.I.T? Below is my schedule: Which is done out side.
Monday - off
Tuesday - Warmup run 10 min (approximately 6mph jog); Sprint for 30 seconds (10-12mph), followed by 90 second jog (6mph)... do this 6-8x.
Wednesday- 5-6 mile run at a steady pace
Thursday - Same as Tuesday
Friday- 5-6 mile run
Saturday - Same as Tuesday and Thursday
Sunday - off
