A Birthday Song and a 20 Minute Treadmill Interval Workout

Something weird is going on around here.
 
I didn’t get on the computer at all last night after the gym, instead I finally watched last week’s episode of The Bachelor.
 
I also went to bed at 11:00pm.
 
This morning STUFT Daddy is sound asleep in bed when he’s usually out of the house before 6:00am.
Kitty, well, he’s his usual self staring me down at the moment, but it must be a special day because he doesn’t have any eye boogers.
 
I also think I’m going to treat myself to my STUFT salted caramel mocha a little early this morning and have it right now before the craziness of my day begins.
 
I can’t decide what to post today. I have a little fun 20 minute treadmill workout, another green muffin recipe or another chia recipe.
 
Hmm…..
 
I just can’t think straight. I’m not sure if it’s because of teaching six classes yesterday or because
today’s a special day.
 
Smile
I’m also not sure what exactly is on the agenda today besides teaching a couple classes and a much needed hair appointment.
 
But….
 
I do know this is the coolest birthday present ever from my sister-in-law and my nieces and nephew.
 
sock monkey hat
(And that is was really cold when I went outside just now to take that picture.)
 
Okay.
 
I’ll save my recipes for another post later this week.
 
Today you get this:
 
a fun 20 minute treadmill workout.
 
This is my go-to treadmill workout when I want to do intervals, but have very limited time. I posted a very similar 30 minute treadmill workout on here a long time ago.
 
I’ll leave the boxes blank so you can fill it in yourself (since you’ll improve and increase your MPH as the more you do it).
 
This is great when you’re pressed for time. It goes by really quickly. I also like to do it to start out a treadmill workout and then just keep a moderate intensity pace for a couple miles afterwards.
Here’s a little overview of the workout. It consists of a few intervals that start out longer and get shorter each time. Your job is to increase your MPH by .2 each time you do a speed interval.
 
Your first speed interval should be 2 MPH faster than your base pace. For example, if your base pace is 5.0 MPH then your first speed interval is 7.0. Each time you do a speed interval you add .2 MPH (7.2, 7.4, etc.)
 
I put the speed intervals in bold. I think the table is pretty reader friendly, but then again, I can’t think straight this morning.
Smile

 

It’s Tuesday Trainer day also at my friend Lindsay’s blog. Check out some cool moves she’s got going on over there. The boys and I are there with a less than mediocre video of a stability ball pass we taped late last night.
 
 
Okay, now I really don’t know what’s going on because STUFT Daddy just woke up and offered to go get me some Starbucks.
 
Say what?
 
I’m going all out and just told him I wanted a sugar free soy mocha.
 
(Obviously I never got around to making one myself like I wrote at the beginning of this post. Ha ha.)
Today is going to be a good day friends!
 
It always is with these guys around.
