It’s no secret that running is my favorite form of cardio.  It’s also no secret that I’m not a competitive runner – I just find that it’s just a great way to exercise.  However, when Khushboo posted a little something about pyramid runs, I was intrigued.  It seemed like a great way to push myself and change up something that has become somewhat of a routine.

Here’s what a pyramid run looks like…

Pyramid Runs

And let me tell you – this kind of a run is tough.  I got on the treadmill today and pushed myself harder than I have in a really long time.  When I got closer to the “top of the pyramid,” I seriously felt like my heart was going to explode (in a good way)!  I was a sweaty beast after two 15 minute intervals (with five minutes of power walking in between).  This new way of running is definitely a winner!

Another not so well kept secret is that I love walking.  So, after completing a pyramid run, I started thinking about how this concept could be applied to walking (both in terms of speed and incline).  Fun workouts are in my future…woo hoo!

And I may have some fun news to report a little later in the week.  Stay tuned! 

What’s your favorite way to workout?  Running?  Zumba?  Yoga?  Pilates?

  1. So glad you enjoyed it- definitely a keeper of a workout! If you look at Courtney’s blog (sweettoothsweetlife), she has a pyramid workout which is tailored towards walking. You know my favorite workout is running- never gets old!

  2. first off my favorite “i feel so amazing after i work out” cardio is definitely swimming but i have to say that i also enjoy a great spin class or a workout on the stair stepper!
