I usually don't run... unless someone is chasing me.
I have been using the elliptical for a couple of months now and wanted to change up my routine. So a couple of weeks ago I thought I would try running. Well, at the pace I go, it is considered more of a jog. So, my question is, is it better to jog at a slower pace (4.5 mph) for a longer period of time (about 13 minutes) or at a faster pace (5mph) only for a couple of minutes. I can jog at the slower pace for a while but once i go any faster than that, I can only jog for about 2 minutes before I think i am going to die. When I am at 5mph, i usually do intervals of 2 minutes of jogging and then 3 minutes of walking at 3mph.
Is ther a 'better' way of doing this or does it really matter?
all this excercising stuff gets confusing!
thanks a bunch
