Gregg made it through his first track workout! Unfortunately, the stadium steps were under construction, so we did not get a chance to run them. But we made up for it on the track. We concentrated on speed work. We ran combinations of sprints and jogs. Gregg's endorphins kicked in at the end...he sprinted past everybody on the track on the last lap!
This type of interval training is instrumental to Gregg's program. Research has confirmed that interval training improves fitness similarly to aerobic training in much less time. Some of the many benefits of interval training are: it improves cardiovascular efficiency (the ability to deliver oxygen to the working muscles, it helps to speed up recovery, it burns more fat in less time.
The twins can't make it to the track next weekend, but Gregg promised us that he will be at the track!!!
