TREADMILL RUNNING | The next time you hit the treads, give this one a try - it’s one of my favourite 90 second runs @barryslondon. 🏃🏽♂Hit 8, 9, or 10mph** for 60 seconds, then sprint for 30 seconds (try sprint speeds of 10, 11 or 12mph.) Don’t be tempted to straddle or pull the chord at the end of the sprint. Instead, build your endurance by running back down to a recovery speed of 4, 5, or 6mph. Recover for 1 minute at that recovery speed and then repeat this running sequence again 4 more times for that HIIT. Here are a few running tips to help you get the most out of your indoor runs...
•Try to run in the centre of the treadmill rather than right up against the bars to encourage a more natural stride and better form
•Invest in a good running shoe. The new @nikerunning Epic Reacts are my current favourites
•Using interval training and bringing your speed (and heart rate) up and down is one of the best ways to boost your fitness levels on the treads and will make you a stronger runner
•Try running on a slight incline (1 or 2) to replicate running outside on the road
•Don’t strike the tread with your heel or you’re asking for injury and putting a lot of stress on your joints. Aim to hit the running belt with your midsole, or ball of foot, and then roll through to your toes
•Sort your playlist. Music is one of the biggest motivators out there...or just come see us @barrysbootcamp and let us take care of the banging tunes
**These speeds are in mph as we use @woodwaytreadmills at Barry’s, so don’t forget to convert to kph if your gym setup is different 🏃🏽♂️ .
