Incline and Speed Interval Treadmill Workout
Yesterday afternoon I picked up my good friend and co-worker, Janny, to head down south. Janny & I create materials for our company and from time to time we are required to travel and teach the stuff that we write. This week we landed in good ole’ Melbourne, Florida. I personally believe there is no place like home and I get incredibly stressed/sad when I have to be away from Ob for an entire week…so unless I’m going to New York City, Napa Valley or Italy, I don’t particularly love traveling for my job. However, I couldn’t think of a better person to travel with than Janny. She is so much fun and we have literally laughed since we got in the car together. If I have to travel for work, she’s the person I want to hang with for the week…
If you ever hear me say anything remotely intelligent or interesting, you can go ahead & assume I got the information from Janny. She’s one of the smartest people I know and I think she should run for President.
Janny does bootcamp during the week at my house, so this morning we got up bright and early to hit the hotel gym together. I have run in Mizunos for years & I don’t see changing that up anytime soon (if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it), but I wanted some different shoes to wear to the gym to avoid ragging out my running shoes too quickly. I went online and designed a unique pair of the Nike Free Run shoes and they finally came in last week. Apparently I am the only person on the planet who didn’t know about Nike’s online design program. You can design your own shoes via Nike’s website? You can write your own message on your shoes (mine say, ‘Don’t Quit)? You can pick from tons of sweet neon colors for everything on the shoe, down to the shoe lace? This was all brand new information to me. Seriously, what is this rock I live under? I just discovered Ebay last year (I thought Ebay was a place where people bought and sold Star Wars trinkets…I was sort of right about that). Anyways, my shoes are awesome & I’m really happy with the way they fit and look. Color me ecstatic.
While I don’t plan on logging a lot of miles in these shoes, I did break them in with a nice treadmill interval workout this morning. I love this workout because you don’t have time to get bored and the 30 minutes flies by. According to Janny, ‘the rest doesn’t actually feel like a rest,’ which is the way I meant for it be! Success! Walking at those intense inclines is tough stuff! Don’t underestimate it! Here is the treadmill workout we did this morning. I was a red sweaty mess by the time we finished.
We finished up by doing a light ab workout
and going to McDonalds for a sausage biscuit.
