This article was very insightful. I will try doing interval the next time I go to the gym.

I love this idea because I get very tired when I walk my 19min mile~ I will start slowing down throughout this walk! Thanks, Spark!!!

Because of my back, I can't use a reg stationary bike, so I use a recumbent bike at the gym..A couple weeks ago, I started the interval training..I do a min as fast as I possibly can, then 5 of reg speed..The first time I tried it, I did it, I didn't think I'd make it through the workout, but I did..felt exhausted, but at same time, felt great..Have noticed that each time I do it, it's getting more into my routine..I find it hard NOT to do it, rather than just do a reg ride on the bike.. I didn't realize I was actually getting alittle bored, until I tried this.. I'm glad the aritcle came when it did..

This was the only way & safest way for me to finish my half-marathon race in 2006. I ran 5/1 which means run for 5 minutes and walk 1 minute. I finished at 2:30 and actually felt great when I crossed the finish line. Highly recommended way of training as well to stay injury free. Will be using the same method for future runs even though I've been running awhile.

I totally understand because if I go to long to fast I want to quit before I get a good work out but it also seems that I am not accomplishing any thing if I don't do that faster run in between the jog

I fair better if I do high low intensity workouts! I mean, if I go high too long, I will quit because I can't seem to catch my breath. If I go too low then its too easy & again I quit the workout. Thanks for reaffirming my mindset!
