I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! As a special treat, I’ve decided to give away some of my “secrets” to successful treadmill running. The best part? These workouts can be tailored to ANY runner – from beginner to advanced – and are guaranteed to make you SWEAT.
Most of my treadmill runs are High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workouts. I choose to do these workouts on the treadmill because you can monitor your pace with 100% accuracy. For anyone that has never done a HIIT workout, these are designed to be SHORTER (saving you time), and more INTENSE (giving you a better workout). They’re heart healthy because they exercise your heart by training you to workout in different heart rate zones. This leads to endurance, better overall health & wellness, and MORE.
Ready to get started? I will be posting a #TreadmillTuesday workout every Tuesday with tips & tricks to modify or make it more intense. Have additional advice or ideas? Leave a comment!
Today’s workout is designed to help you burn off those holiday calories and get you back on track from the long weekend. Note: Time in minutes breaks down what speed you will be running at each minute of the workout. For example, a speed of 8.0 is run at minutes 5 and 6, stopping at minute 7.
Total Time = 35 minutes
This run will make your legs feel like the road runner on speed 10! Want to modify it? Try increasing speed or decreasing speed by increments of .5 (for example, 4.5 can become 4.0 or 5.0).
