Treadmill Interval Workout #1

I have been totally spoiled living in Florida. I am a complete baby when it comes to running outside in the cold. After moving to northern Texas, I discovered that I am not a fan of running in blistery weather. It’s cold and always windy here, at least to me it is.

Therefore, I have been running on the treadmill more. Up until today, I would normally just run at a constant speed for 3-8 miles depending on the day. But that is just so boring!! I was finding it difficult to keep this up.

So today I tried an interval workout. I created this workout in my head as I ran for my warm-up and it actually turned out to be challenging.

THE MILES FLY BY!

It was an awesome workout. Also, I did it all at a 1.5 incline. I thought it was a great first attempt for an interval workout. It was tough but not too tough.

I made sure to get a dynamic warm-up in before that included high knees, butt kicks, knee hugs, walking lunges with a twist, and some other moves that I’m not too sure of the names. Warming up helps tremendously.

Adjust this workout for you!

If you want it to be more of a challenge, then increase the speed of each and vice versa if you would like to make it a little slower.

Also, you don’t have to run as many miles. Make the workout good for you, I want you to push yourself but not to the point of passing out.

Hopefully, you give it a try and I will have more coming! If you have any questions about the workout, just ask! πŸ™‚
