It was 5 degrees (felt like 1) on Christmas morning. So instead of braving the cold weather by myself I decided to try out a few of my new Christmas goodies on the treadmill in our basement!
I got a new pair of Newton Distance sneakers from my parents. Aren’t they pretty? They also felt great during my Christmas run and really helped me to land on the middle/front of my feet. I really can’t wait to race in them this year!
I also got a new pair of Mercury compression socks. I love that they say 110% all over them! That will be a great reminder to give it my all during workouts and races!
Running on the treadmill is soooooo boring to me! I was only going 6 miles but I knew that I would need to do some sort of workout to keep my brain occupied! Last week I read Sharsti’s post about how varying the incline on the treadmill can really increase the intensity of your workout so I came up with my treadmill incline workout to try!
I didn’t run very fast my any means (running fast on the treadmill scares me) but the different inclines really got me! This workout was really hard by the time I got to the 4 incline part! I started at a speed of 7.8 and increased as explained below.
Have you ever tried Newtons before?
What is your favorite workout to do on the treadmill?
