Bust Treadmill Boredom

Hi everyone I hope you had a great week.  The week flew by.  I cannot believe it is December.  We decorated the house and got all of our holiday decor out and I am starting to feel festive!  December definitely brought in the cold weather.  It has been averaging around low 20 degree temperatures for the past week and that means more indoor running for this girl because I am kind of a wimp when it comes to running outside super early at 5:oo am!  I can easily get bored on the treadmill when running more than 20 minutes so I have to have to keep my mind on something or mix things up.  So I threw together this workout to help keeps things changing while I was on the treadmill.  It went by so fast and when I was done I was feeling awesome!  Give this 30 minute treadmill workout a try and let me know how it goes for you!
