Treadmill Workouts

When lunchtime rolled around today, I was shocked to see that somehow there was still one BBQ chicken burger leftover in the fridge from dinner last week.

I crumbled the burger, added light Miracle Whip, stone ground mustard and relish to the mix to make BBQ chicken salad before placing it on a toasted hot dog bun and digging in.

On the side I had a cup of Greek yogurt sweetened with honey and an unphotographed apple.

Right after I finished my lunch, I thought I should’ve used the remaining chicken to make myself a BBQ chicken pizza instead of a simple sub. Next time!

Now for some treadmill talk!

Treadmill Workouts

Late last week, I went through my mini gym bag and threw away the scraps of paper with random workouts on them that I never do anymore and saved the workouts that I know I love and that challenge me.

Since many of the pieces of paper are tattered and torn, I though it might be a good idea to print out new versions of the workouts and I figured you guys might enjoy having a bunch of treadmill workouts located in one place on the blog.

I’ll be sure to link to this post from my Workouts page for future reference.

The workouts below are organized from the shortest workout to the longest workout.

Question of the Afternoon

  • What is your favorite kind of workout to do on the treadmill? Intervals? Long runs? Incline walking?

My favorite treadmill workouts include both intervals and incline walking. Tough stuff!

    Thanks! I have been training for a 1/2 marathon, Oct. 29, once it is over I’m looking forward to more autonomy in what kind of workouts I do. These will be perfect.

    I love treadmill work outs. I usually download some podcasts to do them. These podcasts work great for me since it’s like having a coach in your ear to tell you when to speed up/incline up. Do you run indoors with a running foot pod? I am looking to buy one and wanted to know your thoughts 🙂

    A little trick for your other readers… after I discovered how great your workouts are, I printed them, stapled/glued them to index-sized (4×5 or 5×7) cardstock, then hole punched and placed them on a circle ring (one of those that clips). That way all my workouts were in one easy place, easy to take around with me, and I could keep adding to the ring!

    Hi Julie!

    I just wanted to let you know that i LOVE your treadmill workouts. I did the 30 minutes crazy inncline workout last night, holy hell that was death. Good death, but death to my legs. I love Amanda’s idea for printing out the workouts and putting them on index cards. I think that is so smart!

    I love to run and generally do long distance runs outside because I loathe running on a treadmill. But I am definitely going to have to try out some incline walking since you claim it’s so intense.

    I love your posts on the treadmill workouts. I’m currently dealing with some hamstring/glut injuries along with bursitis 🙁 which is preventing me from my usual running routines. BUT your treadmill recommendations have been a great way for me to stay fit and keep my cardio strong! I mostly do the incline walks right now. Hope to get back to running/sprints once I’m healed. But you have helped keep me going! So, THANK YOU so much! Keep up the ideas and sharing them!

    Hi there 🙂

    I’m sort of new at cardio/treadmill training and I was wondering what incline working *does to your body*. I mean, obviously you’re working your bum but is it also good for loosing a little weight or just good for muscles?


    • says

      hi annie! i’m not a fitness professional, but i LOVE incline walking for the same reasons i love running… it gets your heart rate up! also, it works different muscles than walking or running on a flat surface, increasing booty and leg strength. great for calorie burn, too.


  8. Annie says

    thanks 🙂

    maybe I’ll try that next time, it’s good to change your workouts as otherwise I find I get bored! I’ve been stealing your playlists too 😀


  9. says

    Thanks so much for posting these great workouts. I love my treadmill, but it can be tough to find ways of mixing it up to make it more interesting and effective. Can’t wait to try these!
