I had a lot of comments on this post about how a treadmill is not worth the money . I agree that for many people, it’s not necessary but for running moms with little ones—it really comes in handy! During this season of my life, it is something I use a lot to help maintain my fitness.
Here is the workout I did today. I’ll tell you my pace, but please go at whatever pace challenges you:
1 mile warm at 6.0
1 minute at 8.8
1 minute recovery at 5.0
*repeat 5 times**
1 minute at 9.5
1 minute at 4.0
**repeat 5 times**
1 mile at 6.5
Total workout time was about 43 minutes. I then cooled down, stretched, and foam rolled. All under an hour. All while two little kids were peacefully sleeping. Without my treadmill, this workout could have never happened!
How do you spice up your treadmill workouts?
