    • Life Change - From A Blimp To A Racecar
« on: June 26, 2017, 07:20:30 PM »
I was chatting to a friend about using the treadmill.  Having spent some time on a treadmill myself I realised on thing in particular.  Treadmill work, though somewhat helpful, is not particularly effective for improving yourself.

The problem with treadmill work is that we always tend to walk or run at a pace that is comfortable.  The reality is that if you want to progress you need to get uncomfortable.  On a treadmill there is really only one way to achieve that.  Run harder than what is comfortable.

That is easier said than done.  The solution is to take a HIIT approach.  Walk / run comfortable for 2.5 minutes then run as hard as you can for 30 seconds.  Then repeat.  That's it.
