    How about doing both...some slower-paced, longer duration cardio, such as walking to and from destinations, coupled with sessions of short-duration, sprint-like cardio.

    Depends on your goals.

    I used to be Mr. "45 minute Cardio Session" guy, but now I either do long, relaxed 60 minute walks or else 6-10 hill sprints, 2-3 x a week. In other words, I no longer spend time in the so called "aerobic training zone" because I'm either going pretty slow or as fast as I can manage. I no longer rely on cardio/aerobic training for body composition - I rely on my diet and lifestyle for that, and I spend the bulk of my energy in the weight room doing deadlifts and military presses in the classic PTTP style.

    This is because it's too darned hard for me to increase my strength and explosiveness when I'm draining my reserves with cardio. More so now than ever that I'm over 50. And it seems to be working; I'm down at least 10 lbs from a year ago.

    Your goals and needs may differ. If you like to run or bike or swim, and want to compete in those venues, you'll want to spend time on classic cardio conditioning routines.
