October run total: 104.3 miles. My favorite miles were definitely those logged in Arizona, although the half marathon last weekend was pretty great, too! Definitely a lower mileage month for me – I hope to boost it back up here in November. Last year I started the 100 days of running in November. Not sure I’ll repeat that again this year, but I might do an end of the year challenge to get me going. Any ideas?
Two treadmill workouts I did this week:
- 1/2 mile run, fast
- 10 push-ups
- 20 sit-ups
- 30 second plank
- repeat to at least 3 miles
In the future I’ll probably add a mile warm-up and cooldown to this for a little extra mileage. I didn’t particularly feel like running and this kept it interesting enough with all the breaks on and off.
- 1/2 mile 6.0 (warm-up)
- 1/2 mile 7.0
- 1/2 mile 6.5
repeat between 7 and 6.5 every half mile for as long as you like
I love this one because just when I start to get bored with a certain speed, it changes. I did 4.3 miles before Leo woke up and cut the run short. It’s also a good one for getting me used to holding quicker paces than I normally do.
What are some of your favorite treadmill workouts?
