I think if this works for you and you enjoy it then why not! What sort of distances do you normally run and what times? I beginning to think there are only 3 things to train and these are;
- CV - heart and lungs
- muscles - strength and flexibility
- aerobic stamina - muscle mitochrondria development
everything else - TOTALLY my view and please challenge - seems to be unnecessary and some high intensity or long lasting anerobic excercise might do more harm than good. build up of acid and damaging hormones.
Matt - maybe double the reps and half the times as 1 min might be introducing lactic that can cause acidosis. So the reps are covering 1 and some jogging slowly is tackling 3 what about 2 - strecthing and gym work maybe?
Im currently injured but I think Im forming a training approach which is tragetted at the above and the short HIIT stuff might be what I have been missing.
I will be adopting a HADD approach [see Hadd thread] for 3 and use HIIT to improve CV for 1 and I do YOGA plus strengthening excercises for the other bit - 2.
Cant wait to get back into it!
