    From the article above:

    What’s the benefit?

    “The main aim of interval training is to improve cardiovascular fitness or Vo2 Max—the body’s capacity to transport and use oxygen during exercise—which is important for running 42.2kms (26.2miles). Without interval training, runners can end up running at the same comfortable pace and they don’t improve. They become what’s known as “one-pace plodders.””

    I ran 2 miles every day for 7 years. I began running at age 45. I was a “one-pace plodders.” I ran to get the endorphin high. In 2007, I sat in a simple straight back chair and begin breathing. I discovered meditation and to my surprise also discovered I could elicit the endorphin response while sitting quietly and breathing subtly in the chair. I practice mindfulness meditation every day. My knees are doing fine and I enjoy the journey’s into my interior very much.
