Wellness Wednesday || Interval Treadmill Workout + Accompanying Playlist

(Pullover | Capris)

Hands down, I prefer running outside to the grind on a treadmill… I feel as if all I do on the thing is stare at the clock and ask myself, “How has it only been 30 seconds?” So, I reserve outdoor runs for a steady pace, and have relegated the treadmill to interval training. I first started intervals when I was training for my second half marathon and wanted to improve my time. I’d read that they were great for that, but I also had done some research into HIIT and it’s general effectiveness in workouts. In a nutshell, it works. So, when the temps hit unbearable this past weekend, and running outside wasn’t an option, I opted for a quick interval workout on the treadmill. I varied my incline, and speed, and not only got my heart rate up, but also a great workout….. I decided to share it today, along with a few favorite songs to pair with it, in case you’re looking to add a little variety to your workout too.
