What the hell was that yesterday Bill????  Are you trying kill us?  There was no way we could get those numbers!!  Well no im not trying to kill anyone.  My job as the programmer is to develop a program that will push and test your fitness.  But the object isnt to smash you everyday.  Yesterdays workout was our long programmed workout.  Were you going to be able to stay at a very high tempo for the entire 28 minutes? Well more than likely not.  But i wanted to keep you moving for basically the entire workout.  You did.  Many of you were very tired.  Was it enough?  Yes!  But what if the workout was only 12 minutes long.  Would that be enough?  Only if you push yourself to the limit.  Whether is a short workout or a long workout, if you push to your maximum then you honestly shouldnt need to do anything else.  The purpose of the crazy things we do is so that you get that dose of adaptation.  5 workouts dont mean you get 5 times as much improvement.  The other thing we need to remember, intense workouts increase a stress hormone, Cortisol, in your body.  in the short term this is good, but the long run its bad.  It cause fat to stay on your body, lowers your immune system, increases heart disease, etc.  We think that if we workout then we are healthy.  But if we crush ourselves over and over, the we have decreased health.  Im not saying you cant run if it helps to clear your head or if you use it to think through some problems.  But you dont need to do more to be healthy.  You dont need to do more to look better.  Get your workout in and eat right and you are good, look great and will be healthy for longer:) FEEL THE BURN!!!
