6 Must Have Treadmill Workouts For Runners
I used to be one of those people that hated getting on the “dreadmill” after all, it is a completely different experience from running outside and enjoying nature. However, I’ve learned to appreciate the value of treadmill workouts much more over the past year.
Especially when I really need to complete a training run and the weather is pretty miserable outside. You all know that I am a running weather wimp, so I had to make a truce with the treadmill!
The treadmill has grown on me exponentially. I absolutely do not mind getting on the treadmill, as a matter of fact, I did 12 miles on the treadmill last summer for marathon training! It was long, but it was also 90+ degrees outside and NOBODY had time for that! 🙂 I had plenty of water to drink to keep me hydrated and snacks to keep me nourished. I had all of my favorite workout tunes and pounded it out mile after mile.
It doesn’t even have to be a weather issue, maybe you have a treadmill at home–or maybe you don’t want to hit the streets. I sometimes like the treadmill because it forces me to run fast, even when I don’t want to!
Today I am sharing again from our VERY popular Workouts For Runners Series. Below you will find six variations of treadmill workouts from my favorite runner bloggers (including me!). Next time you want to get on the treadmill, try one of these workouts!
