When my trainer makes me run, he does it with interval only. Its really hard and a real pain in the ass. I do it for the whole session which is 60 minutes. At the end, I just want to die. I would not have enough motivation and guts to do it by myself so that`s why he does it with me once a week.
The rest of the week, I run alone for about 60 minutes as well but on a constant speed which is not as hard at all as what he makes me do. But I still do 10km minimum so it`s good. I do run about 5 times a week and keep 2 days off. After a good run, I drink a cup or a cup and half of orange juice (fresh, not the fake one sold), or take a protein shake, or sometime, I just forget the liquid and go eat a snack
The eating plan he made me is very nice. I never starve or have cravings. The combination of both made it possible for me to loose the little extra weight I had (not that it was that bad) to make it possible for my abs to shine and my thighs to cut a bit more
I used to hate cardio and did only weight for a long time. I am not sure I am in love now with cardio but I see the results and it keep me going. I also feel much better in my head. Sometime in the past, ive gone to the gym right after something upsetting happened to me and after the workout, I would feel better and less emotional which is better for me to deal with some situations..
I agree; outside runs are awesome and a wonderful rush! Will you do some more? Ill sure will
best of luck to you too at the gym!!
