High Intensity Interval Treadmill Workout


Let’s talk about running on the treadmill.

It’s not a very fun thing to do. You feel like a hamster, you have to stare at one thing (usually the time ticking away on the clock) for the entire time, and a pace that might feel somewhat moderate while outdoors sometimes feels like an enormous struggle.

Up until last week I had the pleasure of going several months without having run on a treadmill. But when that polar vortex came along, it really threw my running routine off; To the point where I hadn’t run in almost four days because it was just too damn cold outside.

How to Find Time for Exercise + A Total-Body Gym Workout

Monday marks my third week at The Active Times and my new weekly schedule of working the “nine to five.” So far, I’ve loved every minute of working there. I’ve written lots about running, fitness, and even traveling and I can’t wait to keep contributing more content.

25-Minute Total-Body Dumbbell Strength Workout


Have you ever noticed that fitness bloggers like to call this particular day of the week “Workout Wednesday”? That’s because alliteration is catchy and attention-grabbing annoying. I mean come on, Workout Monday just sounds so wrong. Workout Tuesday… Thursday… Friday? No, it just doesn’t work. Just… workouts were meant to be shared on Wednesdays. In fact, maybe we should even only be working out on Wednesdays. Maybe we’ve been doing it all wrong this whole time.

Hungry Running Recap: 2-Mile HIIT Interval Workout + A Lower Body Strength Circuit

This time last year, I was in the midst of training for the Hampton’s Half Marathon. At the time, my weeks were filled with 8, 9, 10, and even 11-mile workouts. But this year, I have no long-distance fall races planned. I’m giving my legs a nice little rest from any sort of serious racing. I’ve been devoting a lot of my time to yoga and only running 2 or 3 days per week.
