The Debate: Should You Train/Run by Minutes or Miles?
When you set out to do your workout, do you measure in distance or time?

The concept of time versus distance for the best workout has long been debated.

Knowing your goals and limitations is the first step towards deciding whether time or intensity is right for you.

Of course, either goal is better than none. Moving your body, however you do it, is of utmost importance. Mixing up your workout is also essential.

Walking, sprinting and even hills are great ways to break up your routine to get the most out of your workout.

Listen in as Neal Pire and Melanie Cole, MS, discuss which workout style is right for you.
