Hey friends! I hope your week is off to a great start. I couldn’t wait until Workout Wednesday to share this new treadmill workout with y’all. Gym life is going well. I love the feeling of being so fatigued at the end of an evening workout that I crash into bed and sleep like a rock. The best feeling, right?
Some days I don’t feel like running monotonously on the treadmill. Hello, boring. What I love about treadmills is the ability to mix things up with speed and intensity/incline. I tend to leave my steady-state runs for the beautiful outdoors. I have done a couple versions of the workout I am sharing with you today. Between the increasing running speeds and brisk walking, this 30-minute routine is an effective way to get your heart rate up in a short amount of time.
- To add intensity, increase the incline of the treadmill during the walking intervals.
