Any runners out there that have done some treadmill work and interval training?
Need some feedback and/or ideas
Just getting back into jogging and want to lose weight. My circuit training where I alternate 2mins of cardio and weight reps is helping but not enough weight droppage, seems it makes it easier to get bigger vs leaner.
I am closing in on 54, 265 and 6’2”. Back in my heyday of my early 20’s (when I was 215-225ish) I could do 5 miles in under 30 minutes. Before golf and soccer i was a competitive cross country runner and used to do some half marathons
Right now I am doing training on my treadmill where I walk/run 3.5 to 5 miles. I am down to 40 mins for 3.5miles. My times are improving dramatically in just 3 weeks. Basically, I have it on track setting and I walk 28% of the time and run 72%. Walk at 3.5 mph first for 0.07 of a mile then run at 6.3 to 7.2mph for the last 0.18 of the the lap. Rinse and repeat for 14-20 laps
What I read on HIIT training browsing the net is more of walk for 2 mins and then run as hard as you can for 1min .. so maybe I am going about it backwards?
Last Q, how often should I try for beating my best time? Once a week or ?
LASTLY, has running helped your golf game? @MtlJeff
