My Double U Circuit was taking me 1 min/30 sec to complete each round, and then using 3 min low intensity between rounds.
It was very difficult and pushing me to the brink. So I have changed it from a double U (up, across, down, back up, back across, down and again) to a 1.5 U (up, down, up, down, up down).
It reduced the time of 9-10 intensity to 1 minute rather than the 1:30 I was pushing myself to do for 2 weeks.
Really good results today. I did 6 rounds of simple fit running challenge on the hills. This got me 18 uphill sprints within the 20 minutes. When I was doing the Double U's I was getting 16 uphills in the 4 rounds that about knocked me out in 20 minutes.
My goal is to get back to the 1:30 timeframe for 9-10 intensity effort, but I am actually getting more work in by reducing that time right now.
