Training Lisa Chong - the treadmill challenge

Running on the treadmill is boring boring boring. Unless you watch TV or are listening to Lady Gaga and Beyonce singing Telephone and are dance-running and lip synching the words and feel like a million bucks. This can happen, I've experienced it myself.

Here's a way to make it a little little bit more entertaining.

1. Get on the treadmill at a slow pace. Make sure the settings show kms, not miles.
2. Warm up by walking briskly for 2-3 minutes.
3. Now start running SLOWLY at a pace of like 7 (km/h)
4. Now run for a minute at 7, then increase your level by one tenth the next minute, increasing till you get to 8,5 or whatever level is still ok with you but you have to give it some effort. Then go back down again. You do this and you have your 30-minute workout and a slight boredom relief.

I've done it and loved it.
