    OK. Thanks for clarifying.

    I posted a number of pages back about this with the same sentiments. 20 minutes worth and I wanted to puke. Granted I have some time before anything, but better start getting used to preparing.

    Ordered an abmat btw lol..

    im pretty sure your intervals should be X distance sprint, same distance jog/cool down rather than 1:1 in time. At least that's how all the HIIT workouts I've seen go.

    I don't think it matters if you do it in intervals of time or distance, and the program I've been working off does it in time, though a slightly different format. I do time, and 1:1 intervals because it's the easiest to set my running app to do.

    if you have an iphone RunKeeper lets you set queues for time or distance.

    Which program are you using?

    That's what I use, never bothered to try setting by distance.

    I've never tried Nike but I love the run keeper one. I set the audio queues to distance, never have to take my phone out of my pocket.

    Can someone school me on how to control your breathing ? I'm doing the step mill with the vest on and I can't exceed 172 bpm but I'm at 173-176. I'm doing 60 step per min and I check my rate after 6 minutes but it's in that 173-176 range.

    I'm "guessing" it's like everything else you do ... Example .. The more you run the more stamina you get ... The more you do the step mill the better heart rate you would get ...if I'm wrong someone school us both

    The breathing pattern is very interesting. I did 192 day one and the next day I took nice deep breathes and slowly exhaled. After 5:13 I checked myself and I was amazed, it was at 169. I can't exceed over 173 as well. Hope that helps because it did for me.

    I'm list number 58xx with a 98 no extra points. I think that puts me in a pretty good spot to get a call eventually. Just wondering if you guys agree. I need a little reassurance that's all. And if it is good enough to get a call I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas as to how long you all think it would take? Thanks and good luck to all!

    I'm right there with ya, so I'm hoping it's good enough to get a call. If the majority of the predictions are correct we "should" get a call in about 3 years, hopefully.

    It's called the Vagel Maneuver. You take a breath, hold it and bear down just a little. I think ManhattanMedic covered it before.
    I actually did it once on a stress test (treadmill, strapped to an EKG), the doctor was watching the EKG when I did it and saw my HR drop before his eyes a good 10-20 beats. He said, "What the...?"

    I laughed a little and said, "Oh, that was me."
    I passed.

    Guys, sprint intervals are a great tool for getting your HR down as well. Check out Men's Health and Runner's World for some good articles on it. I used to do 10, 40yd sprints on my non distance/time running days. Sprint 40 yards, walk back, sprint again, repeat. Trust me, it works well and you'll feel it.

    Simplest sprint exercise. Find a soccer/football field, sprint long ways walk/jog the short ways. Also Strava Run is a great free app for your distance runs. It connects with Google maps and gives you a layout, your pace, and even mile by mile breakdown.

    Yep. Way we used to do this on the track was run the straights, walk/jog the turns. The track in Greenpoint is great, and there is an outdoor pull-up station, etc. station so you can get in a good workout at the same time.
