Run the Plank

6 Mar

This is how I get through a treadmill run when I want to do anything but run on the treadmill. I mean, sometimes you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do, am I right? And this one’s a no brainer. Jump on the treadmill, run for 10 minutes, jump off and plank for the prescribed amount of time (15 seconds, then 30, then 45 … on up to 90 full seconds). Then jump on the treadmill again and finish the next 10 minute segment.  I leave my treadmill running while I plank so there’s no awkward waiting while the treadmill comes up to speed. (Of course, make sure there are no children or pets around while doing this and be careful getting on and off a moving treadmill!!). Just like the graphic says, this is a workout for time, not distance. The idea is to build strength and endurance–and bust up boredom on the treadmill. Set your pace, adopt your best pirate accent and … Run the Plank, Matey!
