5 Miler Treadmill Workout #1

If you are looking for some variety to your treadmill workouts, here is one of my 5 mile workouts from last week.

This workout basically consists of alternating 1/4 mile hill and flat-land intervals every mile. I felt this was a good workout for me to start adapting to hill and speed work again, without stressing the body too much.

Since everyone runs at different speeds, I have used generic labels that you can associate with a specific pace.

Effort Levels:

Easy – able to talk to the person on the treadmill next to you

Focused – looking straight ahead, minimal talking

Hard – no desire or ability to talk

Workout #1:

After the warm-up, each ‘Effort Level/Incline Grade’ entry represents .25 miles.

Treadmill Workout #1

I am planning to post a new 5 mile treadmill workout every one or two weeks for your training pleasure…or pain!

Happy Training!
