Yeah, the interval cardio training has been around for a long time. Google HIIT (high intensity interval training). Just be careful you don't end up with shin splints.

Make sure to invest in some GOOD shoes.

Huh ? You need good shoes to run in ?
Wow. You are sharp. And you think I point out the obvious. Way to go dickhead.Hannibal: The sworn enemy of dishonest politicians, source of entertainment on Bullshido and newly appointed Office Linebacker. Terry Tait ain't got **** on me !!!!

Shoes suck. Why can't I run barefoot?

Try hill running if it's convenient. For me, it is - Wellington is surrounded by hills, and my campus is located up a huge arse hill that everyone hates. Last night I did a few hill sprints, I like it because it is basically the fastest way I can kick my own arse cardio-wise. I find I prefer steps to a slope though if you can find enough stories worth of steps etc.
I'm sure the fact that I often run barefoot would be frowned upon, but I dont have a pair of running shoes (and my normal shoes are falling apart). So far I havnt had any problems barefoot. The skin on your feet toughens up pretty quickly.

What is the point of this venture?
I'm curious what assumptions about this you started out with.

If you gradually build up to this over time, you could get used to it, but I think the bennefits of shoes far out weigh reasons to run without them.
Brefoot opens you up to increased chances of:
-Broken toes from inpacts
I also think it would increse hip and back stress....
You could try those running sandals for some protection.
There are arguments for running barefoot that are good:
but there is not enough evidence to support this theory safely.
