I’m taking a rest day today after an impromptu (and tough) late-night brick workout Sunday and a hot stop-and-go 3-miler on the track during my son’s track practice the next day, my quads are toast. Tomorrow, I’m playing badminton on my lunch hour, but when I get home (and after I make dinner, do dishes, take my son to t-ball practice, bathe him and put him to bed), I am having a date with my treadmill!
I mean, I think I am. I really want to do this treadmill workout–it actually looks like fun. Fun and treadmill aren’t two words I normally put together. But, also, it looks like an ass-kicker, and I’m not entirely sure that’s a good idea seeing as I have my first triathlon on Saturday.
But what the hell! I’m just having fun at the tri anyway, right?!
I got the workout from JillFit, but it was written by Emily Saunders, a Metabolic Effect Certified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor. Click the link to go straight to the “35-min Advanced Treadmill Interval Workout,” on JillFit.
I have been watching a lot of track and field lately, and I have decided I would like a sprinter’s body.
Speaking of…one of my favorites–Sanya Richards-Ross–will be featured in a new USATF reality show called “USATF 36: Sanya Richards Ross.” The show, which airs at 7:30 p.m. (EST) on June 21 on NBC Sports Network, will follow the Olympic gold medalist for the 36 hours leading up to her season opener at the Nike Prefontaine Classic.
I hope I get this channel! Click here for a trailer of of the show.
Anyway, the treadmill interval workout includes lots of sprints with rest intervals, plus jumping off the treadmill to do squat jumps and stuff. I know I will feel like a bad-ass when I am done!
