  • I have to laugh at these times...I always have to adjust the speeds to fit me... - 4/19/2015 4:08:55 PM
  • I am a slow runner--my very best 5K pace was 11:36 and I was struggling at that. So the 8 minutes at 6 MPH may be a higher exertion. Do I push to do that, even if it is really hard?? - 12/8/2014 7:40:52 AM

    I've always wanted to become a runner, not for competition but for myself. This looks easy enough to follow. - 11/18/2014 6:58:24 PM
  • Thank you very much, with this I will be able to imporve my 5K time. 3 weeks away from my virtual race day. - 10/28/2014 6:52:13 AM

  • Thanks for this article, Jen!

    I began walk/run interval training in June. In another few weeks I'll be ready to begin focusing on building endurance. So, I found this article to be timely. - 8/2/2014 5:10:50 PM

  • I love to walk very fast and do the treadmill. I really work hard at these to. I don't care for running that much. But once in awhile when I am walking I will run just a little. - 8/6/2013 9:59:46 AM
  • I'm going to try this. I use to like running in high school but now I'm scared I'll pass out from exertion. - 4/10/2013 11:07:43 PM

    The RPE is the key, isn't it, I have just begun to run after 20 years of not really being able to and find the concept excellent for judging intensity. I do 1 hr runs on the treadmill, starting slow and increasing my speed every 10 minutes; the intensity for the last 10 minutes on the RPE scale is about 6, maybe 7. I feel that continuing to use this as a gauge will allow me to keep control of my training whilst making the improvements I seek. Currently my average speed for the hour is 7.25kph (approx 4.5 MPH) and my goal is an average speed of 11 kph (about 8 MPH) for an hour, with a maximum of 7 on the RPE, so I have some way to go yet. - 3/27/2013 12:35:12 PM
  • I've always been scared of the 6 mph on the treadmill. Started with the first workout this week and love it!

    Thanks Coach Jenn! - 1/17/2013 7:09:27 AM

    The beginner regime would definitely make me faint. I prefer c25K. This program (free podcast!) builds up your endurance and won't scare you off after your first try. it begins with shorter intervals that lengthen each week. - 1/11/2013 12:03:14 AM
