Some of my Favorite Speed Workouts on the Treadmill

Although spring is coming, it's still winter, and really cold, here. Because of that a lot of my workouts are still on the treadmill. One of the questions I hear a lot is people wondering what my favorite speed workouts are for the treadmill. So today I'm sharing a few with you!

There are so many options when it comes to speed. And doing speed work on the treadmill makes the treadmill time seem faster and more entertaining. So I actually really like doing speed work on the treadmill (although any run outside is far better for me). Here are some of the speed workouts I do on the treadmill.







Remember, while you're doing speed work that your pace is personal to you. That is why I didn't add a certain level on any of these workouts. Your tempo pace will be different from my tempo pace, your speed pace is personal to you! If you need a gage or an idea of where to start, your warm-up pace should be somewhere between a 5 and a 6, tempo speed should be around a 7, sprinting can be anything above your tempo pace. It's all depending on what level you are at. If you start there and it seems too fast for a warm-up, slow down. Remember that this is your workout and you are allowed to modify up or down according to what you need. 

Do you have a favorite speed workout?

Do you prefer running on the treadmill or outside for speed?

  2. Thanks so much for posting these! I do a lot of treadmill running but not a lot of speed work so these workouts would get me out of my comfort zone.

    My speed workouts tend to be short races.

  7. I never prefer the treadmill, even for speed. It's my absolute last resort.

    I like doing 400s on the street. I'm never going to be super fast, but I do my best.

  8. I like these, but there is no way I prefer to do a workout on a treadmill over a workout in any kind of weather outside! Give me the elements!

  10. Great schedule. Thanks for posting it. Most prefer not to share the secrets of their success. They require a lot of money. You are a generous soul.

  11. Treadmill hardware can shift in cost from a couple of hundred dollars to a few thousand. A low spending plan controlled treadmill can be obtained from around $500 however it is credulous to accept this would be equipped for playing out a similar kind on furlough as a model costing $5000.
