Thursday Fact Vs. Myth

You should wear lighter shoes when running on a treadmill.

FACT

Brooks Pure Cadence Running Shoe. Best minimalist shoe for overpronators!

These are the minimalist shoes I want!

If you have lighter shoes, yes. Your joints and limbs require less cushioning as a treadmill absorbs shock far better than the road. Some shoe companies offer models specifically designed for ‘mill use, with less internal cushioning (especially at the forefoot and toes) and more external ventilation (to counter the heat-producing friction of TM belts). Or just switch out your heavyweight kicks for lightweight trainers or minimalist shoes. I run with my old shoes when I run on the treadmill cause I need less support and keep my newer shoes for when I run on the road ;)

Questions:

1. Do you run in minimalist shoes?

2. What is your favorite shoe to run in?


Monday Fit Workout

MOUNT EVEREST

Cardio-love it or hate it? Honestly, I love cardio! This is a fun HITT workout done on the treadmill. Pick any speed you want on the treadmill, I usually pick a running pace. Run for 40 seconds and hop off. Durning those 20 seconds of ‘rest’ increase the incline by 1 percent. Continue this pattern: 40 on 20 off, increasing the incline by 1 each ‘rest’ period all the way until you’re at an incline of 15 percent. Then work your way back down until you’re at an incline of 0 percent again. It will kill you but you will feel SO good when you have accomplished it! And it’s one of those HITT routines that you don’t really have to think with or keep track of anything, just make sure you move the incline each time you hop off!

I love this!
