Just steady running for 40min is a long time to stare at a clock.


Exactly what I did at the gym last night. Well actually for 38m 30s. 10km testing half marathon pace strategy. It was warm, dry and there were people tellies and clocks to stare at - what's not to like Very Happy

I use this workout from TriSutto when my kids are training with their swim club so I'm at the gym anyway. Works well. Bloody hard. Not at the start but it gets there.

Thanks for the link. Smile


much of the pre amble is poor and/or incorrect...

Plus short (30sec) reps given the ramp-up/down speeds of most machines is a lot of button pushing and not much actual running.

.


this gives the non powered treadmills a great advantage...although the effort required to do this is quite significant...

I'm not qualified to comment on the pre-amble.
I find the work out is good for me, but I don't change the speed of the treadmill at all during the session. Set it and jump on and off. Bit like that Tim Don video. But without the talent.
