Norman, now that you've been doing that running routine for a little while what are your thoughts? Are those full one-minute sprints pretty tough?

Hi !

Norman, now that you've been doing that running routine for a little while what are your thoughts? Are those full one-minute sprints pretty tough?


Yes they are ! It's one tough program and I am only at the beginning.... But I think it's worth it : I feel like I have more 'energy'. Besides, running at a constant pace is *boring*, this program brings in some variety and shortens the total running time.

I do it right after the strengh workout. Works for me ... :)

The way I do it is that I always take the same route and I try and go a bit further each time...

The first time I tried L4D2 I was totally out of breath in between rounds. Not so now thanks to the running program.

I posted a reply to you question about the Army fitness test in my log (jhowell001's log)

How long have you been on this program and how much weight have you lost, or are you more defined??

What is your running routine?

Hi, thanks for your answer

How long have you been on this program and how much weight have you lost, or are you more defined??


My first workout was on March 21st this year. I stopped several times though.

I have not really lost weight, I gained muscle mass and lost fat, that's for sure. From my progress on the Levels I am also obviously in better shape.
I've had people ask me if I go to a gym or something, funny when you think on the average *week* I total 30 minutes of (strength) workout.

If losing fat was my first goal, I'd definetly follow a stricter diet as explained by Kevin in the nutrition section.

What is your running routine?


It's here : http://www.simplefit.org/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=536 or see my oct 17th post.

run workout

Postby jhowell001 » Sat Nov 10, 2007 3:49 am

do you rest in between rounds of the run workout?

I'll admit that this workout kinda goes against everything I've ever done in the army, but it makes total sense, and it seems like it will improve my two mile run quite a lot.
