I used to run on the treadmill so much in University and quite honestly a 30 minute run would just be boring, so I was always trying to change it up with intervals etc.
The trend nowadays is definitely towards more weight lifting, which I think is great! However I think for overall health (cardiovascular in particular) cardio still has its place (in my mind anyways).
I think its all about balance. If you only do one thing, you will likely get very good AT that one thing. I like to mix it up and continue to challenge myself in different ways. It’s good for our bodies (and our fascia) to experience different types of movements throughout the week.
I went to the gym the other day to get a good sweat (pre-Lagree, always a big mistake trying to workout before Lagree) and came up with this challenging but great treadmill circuit that made 24 minutes of running fly by. I’m going to try and get better at this run for the last bit of 2020 and see how I feel! And who knows maybe I’ll up my speed to 7.0 at some point
If you try it out let me know how it goes!
If you have not run in a while I would not recommend this.
Be sure you are medically cleared from your doctor to run.
If you experience any pain during your run STOP!
