Didn’t run. Walked 2.23 miles instead. And it only took 6 minutes longer than it would have had I done interval running but was a shit ton less stressful on my body. I didn’t sweat but that’s because it’s God damned freezing outside and I was in a sports bra and thin hoodie (yeah yeah, I know, I thought it was warmer).
Question for my fitness type friends out there … if running is really negatively impactful on the body (it’s murder on my left knee and wrapping it doesn’t help) can I successfully build up my cardio by walking at a brisk pace for distances? Or am I basically spinning my wheels just walking?
I’m not sure but one of my best friends use to run until her last checkup at her doctors, he told her to stop running for fitness because she was causing more damaged to her body then helping and she’s pretty fit so take that for what you will…
I think with your circuit and the walking you should be OK, or you can try speed walking intervals until your knee feels better.
