Have I told you guys that Mr. Hungry LOVES running in the heat?  He cuts himself off at 100 degrees, but only because he thinks that is the safe move.  If it were up to him he would be out there running. Personally, I can’t stand running in the heat (normally I love the heat), I’ll take a sweaty treadmill workout in AC over temps above 80 any day! So if you are like me and seeking refuge from the heat on a treadmill check out this list of awesome boredom busting treadmill workouts.  If you are like Mr. Hungry, please stay well hydrated and wear a road ID in case you pass out.

My #1 Tip To Get Faster

To those of you who look at these workouts and think you could never run that fast, to you I say, guuuuuurrrrrlllll I’ve been there.  Running did not come natural to me, there were a lot of things about it I wish I would have known. To be totally honest, for the first two years of running I was happy if I hit 6.0 for even 10 seconds. Now, you will notice that 6.0 is really my easy recovery base pace, but it took a LONG time to get there.

What I did was take workouts I thought I couldn’t do and used the same interval scheme but with lower mile per hours. Each time I did the workout I would slowly push myself a little more and more until I got the workout up to what it had originally been.  So if the workout was intervals 6.0 6.3 and 6.5 I would do 5.0 5.3 and 5.5 the first time, then 5.1, 5.4 and 5.6 the second time, and so on, until I could do the full workout. Give it a try, it will work, after a few months you will be faster!

As always please be careful and be sure to check with a doctor before beginning a new exercise routine.  Although I am a personal trainer, workouts that are right for my body may not be right for you!

  1. Love this! It always helps me to go into a workout with a plan, but find too often that I just wing it!

  2. […] The graphic makes me laugh because often I scribble treadmill workouts on notecards and head out the door.  I guess that is what was on my mind because this graphic kind of reminds me of the notecards!  If you are looking for more treadmill workouts you can always check out 23 boredom-busting treadmill workouts!
