    I have read very nice suggestions in this thread. I think the running is really good cardio.

    I'm big for mixing it up if I try doing one type of cardio for more than say 3 or 4 days I get a little bored and it impacts my duration - sometimes I'll leave early etc

    So I typically mix it up like so

    Day 1 Jog 4kms
    Day 2 15m HIIT
    DAY 3 Jog 4km
    Day 4 jog 2km and 15 min HIIT

    Works a treat for me.
