30-Minute Pyramid Treadmill Workout

One of the biggest challenges in my life right now is making time for everything and attempting to keep a good work-life balance.

With a really busy semester of school plus work, errands, life and blogging I always feel like there are never enough hours in the day. My busy schedule calls for quick workouts I need to sneak in. Luckily, I have a treadmill in my apartment so if it’s a reasonable hour, (sorry to my neighbors for the treadmill noise), I can hop on the treadmill to squeeze in a few miles. I honestly find anything more than five miles unbearable. My go-to treadmill workout is a 30 minute interval run.

Today I’m sharing my go-to treadmill workout. The speed changes incrementally in a pyramid fashion so it keeps me from getting bored. It’s great workout that only takes 30 minutes.  The pyramid takes 15 minutes and when repeated once it makes a nice 30 minute workout. You could always repeat the pyramid more times to increase the length of your workout too.
