First Run of Spring

The weather perked up enough that I was able to go for my first run of the season.

Thanks to all the metabolic conditioning workouts, I ran twice as fast and four times as far as I usually can. I definitely felt stronger.

Which lends a lot of credence to the studies showing these cardio strength/fat loss training workouts result in the best aerobic performance.

Now, I'm not a runner. I don't go for distance. More of a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout. A lot of times, I alternate running and walking with skips, jumps and traveling lunges--this is one of my favorite all time workouts.

I'm impressed with the results I've achieved so far. Really impressed.
