    hi all,

    my personal trainer has got me doing interval training, where i run for 2 mins and walk for 2 mins alternating for a set amount of time.

    so far ive only managed 10 mins of it in my cardio circuit as im knackered when i get to the tredmill cause of xtrainer!

    anyone else do this type of exercise? its great for me as im astmatic to take the pressure off as i get a break every 2 mins.. :D

    i train like this too and really feel the benefits because as you progress you'll be able to run for longer so 3min run & 2 walk. It works!

    I've been doing this sort of training for the last 8 weeks. I am following the Running Made Easy programme for the beginner where eventually I'll be able to run 5 k without stopping. I'm on week 8 now and run 3 mins/ walk 2mins for 35mins. I could run further and far longer, but the last year I suffered from shin splints which were very painful and set me back to square one again with running. So I'm holding myself back to the programme for now. It's a great way to build up your running time with a reduced risk of injury. Good luck. The weeks do fly by and you'll be running for longer in no time at all.
