LMUR Tip: Try intervals

If you don’t like the idea of continuous running, or have not been as successful as you’d like, try interval running. Begin by alternating between running for 1 minute, then walk for 45 seconds, and repeat. You’ll be surprised how much ground you can cover doing intervals, and you may also find that you can maintain your running form better with this approach.

Play with the ratio of running:walking to see what works best for you.

Oh, and don’t let anyone tell you it’s not ‘real’ running. 🙂

    I agree. A couple of months back I used a 10K trainer app and it started with programs like run for 60 seconds walk for 90 seconds and one day It told me to run for 22 minutes non stop. So surprised was I when I only stopped for 1 minute in those 22 minutes! I’m still using the program and my trainer has now suggested I run at an easy pace for 4 minutes then run harder/sprint for 1 minute.
