Do Women Runners Need HIIT Strength Workouts? A Science-Based Answer to Consider


As recreational women runners age 35 & over, it can be the wild wild west of recommendations out there. Here I break down where I see common mistakes & well-meaning yet poorly applied exercise advice. 

One thing I forgot to mention: Yes, you also can get components of HIIT in any running training plan. Having one speedwork session per week is usually my recommended approach. It can be as simple as 30 second bursts at the end of a shorter run or doing a track workout.
