Is interval training safe for me?

Aging and interval training!


I was chatting with an older athlete, a runner, the other day. He was overcoming a health crisis. The usual questions came up about safe training. He specifically wanted to know whether it was OK for him to do interval training.

The only person who can really answer this question is him.

It comes down to benefit-risk assessment.

Furthermore, doctors and surgeons are but one tool in his toolbox.

The bottom line is to find your weakest link, and factor that into the level of intensity of your intervals.
