Today, I did interval runs and I sweated…A-L-O-T!
It felt good.
I went three and a half miles in right around 40 minutes.
That felt good too.
Lately I have just been walking. After my half-marathon, I decided to give my hips and joints a bit of a break and stick with walking/light jogging for a while.
Lately, I have had an urge to do intervals runs. I LOVE THEM! I love the speed and then the break. The break is just enough to get me ready for the next burst of speed. My cousin, an avid runner says I am crazy for loving intervals but I don’t care. Call me crazy but I do love them!
Another good thing with intervals is the sweat. I am not a person who sweats a lot. When I was heavy, I was sweaty all the time but now, I just sweat when I am having a good workout. I sweat the most with intervals runs.
Last summer, Jen over at Prior Fat Girl asked her readers to send her sweaty pics. She did a few Sweat is Beautiful posts. I love this idea. We all need to celebrate our sweat! We work hard for that sweat!
I am going to piggy back off of Jen and do my own “Sweat Rocks” campaign!
If you want to be included in a “Sweat Rocks” post, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include in your email your picture, name you want me to use, and a blog link if you have one, and I will do some “Sweat Rocks” posts. With is being summertime, I know we can get some sweat on! Send me your pics!
Have you ever tried intervals? Do you love them or hate them?
