    Awesome shirt.

    I've started interval sprints in the morning, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I cannot believe I am actually waking up in order to run, I am not a runner, my gait looks like a cross between a Brown bear and a moose.

    However, next year I am going to run my first ever half marathon and raise dollars for a charity. Not sure which charity yet, but the goal is to run a half marathon. So I might as well start training now.

    Also, interval sprints are fucking insane for cardio. Apparently by doing 3-4km of interval sprints (up hill) with jogging in between, normal jogging is a piece of piss. I wouldn't know, being a fat non runner and never having tried.

    You can build cardio more quickly with intervals than with steady-state running. But if you plan on doing a half, you need to put some miles in. You need the legs, too.

    I jump-rope for the cardio and run steady 2.5 - 3.5 miles three days per week and 7 - 9 on Sundays.

    My typical lunch workout is 30'@6mph. I have moved it up to 6.5mph for half an hour on occasion. Once or twice a week I'll do an 8min mile and just last week I did a 7min mile- fairly certain I hadn't done that since high school 12 years ago- then I finish the half hour out at 6mph.

    Sorry, I meant a bit over a half of a half marathon. 14kms is the event I'm entering. I'm not looking for a respectable time, I couldn't give a ****, I'm not a runner. If I run most of the way, I'll be happy.

    When it comes to cardio, I prefer swimming.

    That's around 30 km/week, good enough mileage to help your cardio for fighting, too much more than that and you will start to lean out, as I have done. But I made a conscious choice to focus on running rather than strength training.

    Battlefields, if your goal is to survive 14 km and you are in any sort of shape from training you will probably be fine. My only concern would be knees, I know it took me a long time to build up to where I could run that distance without pain. One of the things the mileage does is strengthen the knees. At one point I would not have thought I could go past 10k, now I've run a couple of marathons.
