Today was a cardio day. Did interval sprints with jogging in between. Walked a little for part of it. Did this for 3 miles. Completed in 30:45. I'll take it. Might try for a regular 3 mile run on Thursday and see what sort of time I can get. I'm not a huge running fan lol.

Interval training is my favourite

Yup you've got a wealth of people trumped in the stamina game. Good sh%t!

Thanks 🙂 No where near my military days but considering how many years ago that was, can't really expect it. Plus, the amount we worked out then would not be feasible to do while maintaining a career that didn't revolve around fitness lol. I'm trying to be realistic without simultaneously lowering the bar too much haha

@livetodiscover I do think that you chose major distinction by serving a contract in the Marines.


I think I've said this before but if you lift, seriously running, especially sprinting, is probably too much stress on the joints in your legs and in your spine. The intensity of sprinting will probably cut into your leg development too.

Very true. I limit running to once a week especially if I know I'll do it at a higher intensity. It's definitely not the level of sprinting that I did in high school track but still good to be careful. My other cardio day this week will either be a slow run (like the 3 mile I proposed) or something easier on joints like elliptical or swimming.

@livetodiscover As long as it doesn't cut into leg development I always recommend what folks today call a stairmaster (they used to be called stepmills) .[] These are amazing for fat burning and more than intense enough!

@kmdskit3 oh yes! Love the stair master! That has got to be one of the most tiring cardio machines lol


Good job! I used to jog until I pushed myself on distance and speed. I hurt my knee. I later discovered that what I did was common, hence lots of older folks in knee braces. Upside is that I discovered bicycling and that it has upped my cardio stamina more than jogging ever did. I also walk which uses different muscles. Im trying to condition for a special mountain trail in my area. Btw I'm 55 yrs old and I have a resting heart rate of 49 and below. Im feeling great too! 😀

A big reason I am doing cardio is to help avoid my family's genetic predisposition for high blood pressure. I was hospitalized once for it after having my daughter. Am hoping to avoid medication the rest of my life if I can! That's great to hear about your resting heart rate! I am working on lowering mine, which reminds me...I should check it!

Posted by SilviaParkI had my first triathlon in Sunday, an indoor USATri60. Lots of room for improvement, but I'm just a beginner swimmer, and haven't taken my bike on the road yet :)
