Cold weather and icy roads have kept me on the treadmill lately, but it’s been a good opportunity to do some speed workouts on the treadmill. Here are two 30 minute treadmill workouts that I’ve been doing as I start to get ready for my spring races.
This workout is based on a tempo workout, but gradually increases the pace up to 7.1 mph (8:27 min/mile).
This workout is a ladder-style interval workout that starts at 6.3 mph and works up to 7.5 mph (8:00 min/mile).
I usually do 2 minute/1 minute intervals, and adjust my recovery pace as the speed intervals get harder. With a 4 minute warm-up and 4 minute cool-down, this ladder takes 30 minutes.
