Hill Interval Treadmill Workout

treadmill

Steady pace, varied levels…something to pass the time. That’s what I look for in a treadmill workout. Running a single pace and incline for an hour? It’s draining, tiring and hard to maintain, even with the best movie or entertainment right in front of you.

This workout focuses on a steady pace, but varies the incline. It’s simple, straightforward, and helps the runner focus on smaller time segments instead of a long count. Tricking myself is essential for getting the work in inside…see if it works for you!

Remember. I am not a doctor. Before trying any workout routine, talk to a professional to find out what’s the best plan for your activity level and health. Do not embark on a fitness plan without medical guidance!
