HIIT training program — OUCH my knee hurts!!!

I tried a HIIT training program today and I have to say it did kick my butt compared to either a) running for 25 minutes or b) walking for 50 minutes.

I burned 247 cals in 25 minutes over 1.87 miles. However, the story of this training is that the sprinting creates more trauma than just running steady at less speed then the running, and longer time at slower pace. I’m not sure if this is true or not… but I do feel more wornout after this than 50 minutes walking.

I also feels slightly more worn out than the 25 minute runs I’ve been doing of late. So, I guess that is a good time. In addition to the HIIT training I did a little weights, squats, and situps (like 10-15 minutes worth total, not that much).

As you can see I did 8 sprints and 8 walks, plus a warmup and warmdown. Any feedback? I wish some personal trainers could join the discussion here (if anyone knows anyone please point them to fatblogging.com :-).

PS – To Jaffe who complained that I called him fat I’d like to point out that a) we are equally fat and b) you’re my pal, you know I love you, and you called yourself Jaffe the Hutt about seven times when you came by the Calacanis Compound.
