Indoor running tips
I had a crazy intense cardio workout today. 30 minutes on the treadmill with a speed of 6 and a minimum incline of 4. (Maximum incline was 6.5.) I had the machine on random and I got the hardest “virtual route” ever. I stuck with it though and the ending felt great. My heart rate jumped to 173 at its highest. My tip to all you indoor runners (especially now that the cold winter season is almost upon us), vary your indoor workouts. Play with the incline and speed. Maybe one day you keep the incline low, but work on speed. The next day you hike the incline up, but lower the speed. And then one day, you hike them both up and see how you fare. So as a reward for my super workout, I had a healthy dinner. Grilled salmon, avocado, salad, and blueberries for dessert. Overall, I’d say I had a pretty healthy day!
