Laci made a discovery this weekend…TV. The last few times we’ve had it on she sits in front of it like this and stares at it.
This morning I got a great workout in on the local track. I’m starting to fall in love with this track. It is close to home, the dirt so much less rough on my legs than normal track, and its never crowded.
I feel incredibly lucky to live in a place with such mild weather that I am able to run on an outdoor track in January. And I realize that this is not the case for many of you around the country that are being bombarded by winter storms and record low temps (I have been getting many calls/texts from family and friends back home telling me all about the crazy weather).
So for those of you stuck in the second Polar Vortex I have a fun treadmill workout to get your heart pumping and your legs moving. And since I’m on a roll with the alliterations recently (Sunday Summary, Monday Meal Prep) let’s call today Treadmill Tuesday. I did this workout when I was home for Christmas and it was 9 degrees or so outside. Its 7 miles total but feel free to shorten or lengthen the warm-up, cool-down, or intervals to adjust it to your goal distance!
Hills are great for building strength and doing them on a treadmill can actually benefit your body because you get the strength building from climbing the “hills” but none of the extra pounding from actually running downhill! So if you’re stuck inside for you runs this week give this treadmill run a try! 🙂
Treadmill: love, hate, or indifferent?
How many of your runs are being done on the treadmill these days?
