>Running 101>Heres the fat guys progress !!!
Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

One last note, ive got shitty shoes and im wondering if shoes can make a difference in my running Thanks all
I would say the simplest/safest way for you to burn more calories and get faster is to ditch the intervals twice a week and just run more. You're doing great - but just running more miles will help you more than the intervals.
Surely you must be joking... I'm not joking and stop calling me Shirley. OK, I couldn't resist that one, but the advice above is just plain bad.
Here is a pretty good primer on fat loss techniques.
If you don't believe the article, then I'd suggest a search on PubMed. There is a TON of research to support intervals vs. long slow distance for fat loss.
Those who try, fail! Those who do what it takes to succeed, succeed!!
Nice job on the reading comprehension. Apparently you missed the part about safer and the part about burning calories AND getting faster. Many people around here (self included) have found that simply adding miles is the most effective way for newer runners to build endurance and speed.
I don't have a problem with HIIT or variants - but I don't think intervals for 50% of your volume is smart for anyone whose focus is running - and I don't think intervals belong in anybody's program whose peak weekly milage is 5 miles.
