Woohoo – had a great workout at the gym today. I cranked up the Florence + The Machines station on Pandora and rocked out 3 miles of progressive intervals. I have a really tough time just running on the treadmill. I either need to walk at an incline so I can read, or I turn to intervals to pass the time.
Today I did 3:1 intervals (3 minutes running, 1 minute walking) and increased the speed by .1 MPH each time I ran. I started off at 6.5 MPH and worked up to 7.1 MPH. I felt strong a the whole time.
After the intervals, I did a quick but hard strength routine that included a little bit of everything.
- Chest flyes
- Lat pulldown
- Kettlebell swing with leg lift
- Bicep curls
- Shoulder raises
- Tricep kickbacks
- Plie squats
- Ab roll with stability ball
What is your go-to treadmill workout?
