hi all,

this may sound a stupid question but what is intervals when running?
is it as simple asit sounds and this make it a stupid question to ask lol,
but running at one pace for a set period of time and then running at a slower pace or walking for a set period of time?

Cheers

Shaun

It's a 20 minute break where you go buy and eat a tiny pot of ice cream.

(someone will give you a proper answer in minute, I'm sure...)
