Treadmill Tuesday: 30 Minute Speed Interval Workout

It has been a while since I’ve posted a treadmill workout. I didn’t spend much time on the treadmill this summer, and when I did, I took it easy since I was rehabbing my ITB/glutes/piriformis. Now that I am feeling stronger, I think my body can handle some more intense running workouts, and with the Army Ten Miler only a few weeks away, I think my body needs to practice running faster again.

Necessity was the mother of this workout–last week I hit the snooze button too many times and only had 30 minutes to squeeze in a workout.

    hmmmm I do think I could adjust this and use on the recumbent bike this morning!

  2. I love mixing up the speeds on the treadmill. Gets in the speed workout and alleviates the monotony. Great job!

    This looks like an awesome 30 minute workout! I usually do something similar, but I may just have to write this one down and use it as a reference next time I’m doing my workout… Lol the treadmill has been my go-to a lot lately because I have been oversleeping as well. I think it must be the nice cool weather… Makes it too tempting to stay in bed in the morning!
