HIIT

HIIT – or High Intensity Interval Training, to the uninitiated – is the order of the day. It’s about to become a regular part of the training routine for the next few months. You can just call me the HIITman, ha ha.

Today was interval sprints: 30 sec. sprint, 60 sec. walk – ten times. But I felt really good after the first five (and you’re not supposed to feel really good during HIIT), so I did the next five in 30/30 sprint/rest ratio. That hurt.

Then I finished things out with 5 sets of 30/30 burpees/rest. Why the burpees after all that sprinting? It’s a philosophical thing. To paraphrase Nietzsche, “We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced done burpees at least once.”
