Total calories burned= 421! Calories burned were based on my weight, which is around 125. If you keep the same speeds as the chart above, you will run approximately 4.80 miles!

What I loved about this workout is that it kept me mentally engaged the whole time and did not allow me to become bored.  During this workout the pace changes every 2-3 minutes, so you are constantly changing up what you are doing.

I found this workout to be challenging, so if you are not comfortable with the paces please change them to fit your current fitness level.

You will notice the abbreviation “RPE”.  That stands for “Rate of Perceived Exertion”, or how much of a challenge or effort you a putting forth.  The scale goes from 1-10, or sometimes you will see a scale from 7-20.  For this workout, I have the RPE scale set at 1-10.

  1. Hi! I was wondering what type of treadmill do you think is the best at home treadmill? Or kind of treadmill do you have at home? Thanks!

    • Hi Heather!

      At home I use a Nordic Track and love it. That is the only treadmill I have owned. I’ve used others at hotels of course, but do not remember the type (they were the fancy ones with a display!) If you’re looking for a treadmill you may want to consider if it has an incline option. I use that a lot on my treadmill when I can’t run outside. It allows me to simulate hills and get in a good workout.

      Do you have access to a gym? I would also recommend going to a local gym and trying out their treadmills. As long as I can control my pace and have incline options I’m good to go.

      I hope this helps! Let me know if you have anymore questions, or what treadmill you decide on 🙂
