H.I.I.T. Workout at the Track

20200528_125209

One reason I love running/walking is because it is FREE. Just go outside and run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you’re running and you get tired, slow down. Feel good? Go faster! I know running at the track can be boring for some people. To mix things up, screen shot the track workout below for your next run!

1st Mile:

400 m walk

400 m jog

400 m walk

400 m jog

 2nd & 3rd Miles:

100 m run (or sprint) on the straight away

100 m walk on the curve

100 m run (or sprint) on the straight away

100 m walk on the curve

Repeat until you’ve completed 3 miles.

If this is too hard, reduce your speed or the distance. Beginners: start with 1 mile.

If you feel like this is too easy, add mileage or extend the length of each sprint. For example, try 200 m sprints instead of 100 m.

Challenge: Record the time it takes you to complete the workout and try to improve your time. Remember, you vs. you. Work on yourself. Don’t worry about what other people are doing.

Note: 400 m is 1 lap on the track or ¼ mile. You can also try this workout on a treadmill.

Let me know if you try it & have fun!
