This 35-Minute Interval Playlist Will Turn You Into a Runner

Interval training is an ideal technique for new runners. It builds stamina, improves confidence, and promotes healthy weight loss to boot. This beginner-friendly, 35-minute workout alternates between periods of running and walking, and it comes with an uplifting playlist to add enthusiasm to every step. Be sure to get in an active warmup to loosen up your body, and then get ready to run. You’ll kick off the run strong with a fast-paced U2 tune, then you’ll go for a brisk walk with Rihanna.
