30-minute interval workout to beat treadmill boredom


If you’re nodding your head at the cartoon above, I’ve got a great workout for you!

Below is my boredom-busting treadmill routine. It’s designed to distract, so over the course of 30 minutes, you’ll be constantly adjusting your speed. And as an added benefit, this interval approach aids in burning extra calories.

So crank up the tunes, get in the zone, and watch the minutes fly by…


A few things to keep in mind:

  • Maintaining an incline of one percent throughout the workout can help prevent shinsplints
  • Listen to your body: If any pace feels too fast, modify to suit your fitness level
  • Calorie burn will vary based on a number of factors: Age, weight, intensity and efficiency, to name a few
  • Finally, be sure to check with your doctor before starting any new exercise program!
