Ladder Speed Workouts: My Favourite Workout Routine

Wow! My mouth is totally watering from all of your awesome recipes that were linked up yesterday ” you guys are awesome! I should do a call for you to share your recipes every month just so I don’t have to search for great things to cook 🙂

Today is day 17 of the August Blogging Challenge, and we’re talking about our favourite workouts. As you all know very well, I LOVE to run! But I don’t enjoy steady state running – that’s pretty boring, so instead I like to mix it up – sometimes I sprint from light pole to light pole, then jog to the next pole, or I’ll run hill repeats, or I’ll run a new route on country roads, or trails at the nearby conservation area, or I’ll do my favourite:

Good to see you're varying your workouts and not just doing the typical step out of your house and run 5km. If you asked a room full of people how many of them are recreational distance runners, half the room would put their hands up. If you asked that same room, how many of them are recreational 400m sprinters, I doubt you'd see any hands. Reason for this? Cause at the end of a 1-1.5 min sprint, you feel awful. So even though it sucks, if you're healthy enough to try it, do a 400m sprint, rest 2 mins, 400m sprint, rest 3 mins, 400m sprint....etc. Will burn fat more efficiently, as well as only take about 15-20 mins. Keep it up Janice!

I love intervals on the treadmill. Running for a long time at one speed on the treadmill might be one of the most boring things ever. Even if I don't do a full interval session, I do mess with the speed a little bit.
