That's great to do, HIIT is a good way to keep things interesting. Thumbsup

I have been trying yoga lately (at the suggestion of a female friend of mine). It feels slightly awkward being the only guy in there however, the ladies in there have been very helpful. And they like having someone to walk them to their cars when it is dark.

Similar. I stıck to a sprınt 20 seconds, jog 10 seconds protocol, assuming I'm on even ground. I even edıted the songs ın my runnıng playlıst to ınclude timed tones. But what I prefer is to find a nice hill trail and sprint up, walk down, repeat til dizzy.

RE: Atheists who work out
My sprints are slightly longer, 30-45 seconds, but that's about what I do, lately at the end of my runs, too.

I take yoga now and again, I love it, and should take more classes. Do you like it?

If junkfood isn't part of your regular diet it's probably fine to indulge* occasionally.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

RE: Atheists who work out
Did an easy 40 min run on Wednesday. Was raining pretty heavily, but felt good anyway.

Yesterday I ran LT intervals, 5 min fast, 1 min easy x 4 + 15 min warmup/cooldown.

Afterwards I "indulged" in some pizza Tongue

LOL…Pizza is a good ‘indulge’ food Big Grin

Nice run!

I skipped last night, was really tired, and knew a work out wouldn’t be as I’d like, so today, I’m leaving work early and will get a good run in, and then nothing but fun planned for tonight and tomorrow.

Thank Gandalf it’s Friday! Tongue

When I first read that I imagined the physical action of skip. Like skip to my lou. Haha. I was thinking interesting variation on cardio!
