Fit to be King - Run Into Fall

Chandler Parr gets you ready for Fall with this fun, treadmill circuit

RUN INTO FALL

Running and I have always had a love hate relationship. It is one of my favorite, and least favorite workouts. I find that motivating myself to run, over any workout, has always been the hardest. But, once you get past the consistent 5 day stretch, it is one of the most freeing and mindful workouts there is. The easiest way for me to get past this hump, was creating circuits on the treadmill, almost like a game.

As much as I love the outdoors, I have found that the treadmill is the quickest way for me to find my groove and to push my running to the next level. I also love the treadmill, because in fitness there are so few exercises where you can see immediate progress right in front of your eyes, and with the treadmill, just by going .1 or .2 faster, you instantly see that you can push a little more than you thought. 

By doing these circuits on the treadmill, my outdoor running times have gotten faster and my endurance level higher, so go find yourself a treadmill and have at it!
