One-Hour Workout: Head For The Hills, Inside

When it’s too cold and snowy to run outside, try this treadmill workout that involves hill running.

Every Tuesday we’ll feature a different coach’s workout you can complete in 60 minutes (or less!).

This week’s treadmill workout comes from Lauren Vallee Updyke, a USAT Level I coach for Base Tri-Fitness in Columbus, Ohio. Vallee Updyke created this indoor strength-building workout with fellow Midwestern athletes in mind who might also have difficulty running in the snow.

“Your speed should be determined by what you can comfortably maintain for a one-hour steady state zone 2 effort. For athletes who can comfortably run faster than 7 mph, increase the treadmill incline versus increasing the speed,” Updyke suggests. “For newer athletes, a walk is appropriate during the recovery intervals.”
