Great runs on the treadmill? Is this actually possible?? Indeed, it is. The treadmill is can be your greatest, most reliable training companion. It never cares if it's too hot or too cold, raining or snowing. It's there to perform and always waiting for that next foot plant.
Try This: Start at an easy pace. After 5 minutes, crank up the speed by
.5 MPH for 1 minute, then back down to your easy pace for 2 minutes.
Crank up the incline by .5% for 1 minute, then back down for 2 min -
utes. Continue alternating, experimenting with pace and incline.
This: Warm up at a slow to moderate pace for 5 minutes, then
increase the speed to race pace and hold it for 10 minutes for a hard
tempo. Cool down for 5 minutes.
Try This: Alternate jogging and walking—2 minutes jogging, 2 minutes
walking—for a total of 20 to 30 minutes. If your injury or illness doesn’t
3 minutes, then 4, then 5 (and so on), and bring the walking segment
down to 1 minute in between.
Try This: Do a 10-minute warmup at a 1% incline. Then increase the speed by .5 MPH for 3 minutes, decrease the speed to warmup pace for
2 minutes, increase by 1 MPH for 3 minutes, and decrease to warmup
5-minute cooldown. This 35- to 45-minute workout has enough fast
segments to keep you speedy until spring, and it’s more mentally
engaging than a single-speed treadmill run of the same duration.
