Teacup Drake and Another Treadmill Workout.

Remember my push up buddy from the other day? Well, he is back again.

Meet Drake. The Wannabe Teacup Yorkie.

The inspiration for the previous picture came from this:

Not only is Drake not a full blooded yorkie- he is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel crossed with a Yorkie- but that teacup is not a teacup, but rather a large flower pot. You could probably fit about 10 of the real Teacup Yorkies in there. Needless to say, Drake nailed it!

As the weather continues to be crappy here in Iowa, I found myself on the treadmill yet again. So it was time to get creative again. Here is what I came up with:

Treadmill BuildupΒ 

Time Speed
0:00-1:00 5.0
1:00-2:00 5.5
2:00-3:00 6.0
3:00-4:00 6.5
4:00-5:00 7.0
5:00-6:00 7.5
6:00-7:00 8.0
7:00-8:00 8.5
8:00-9:00 9.0
9:00-10:00 9.5
10:00-11:00 5.0
11:00-12:00 5.5
12:00-13:00 6.0
13:00-14:00 6.5
14:00-15:00 7.0
15:00-16:00 7.5
16:00-17:00 8.0
17:00-18:00 8.5
18:00-19:00 9.0
19:00-20:00 9.5
20:00-25:00 Cool Down

Total Time: 25 minutes

This workout was pretty tough I must say. I considered going another round, but I felt two was enough for today. I like the format of this workout because if you want to lengthen it, another round adds a square 10-minutes. Feel free to adjust the starting speed for your fitness level, just raise the speed 0.5 each minute. Give it a try!

Enjoy!

  1. After conditioning and pick up I decided to finally try this treadmill workout. Even though I made it only to 8.5 I still had to push myself to finish this workout. It was a very challenging but I liked it and I will keep trying until I reach 9.5 speed. Thanks Shelb!!!
