Let me know what you think. The incline walking is a sure way for working that booty, which is always good. Does the above workout look too hard for your fitness level? Then for a slightly more beginner version, just

I tried this out today and thought it was pretty good! For me it was a good moderate intensity workout. The first ten minutes are low intensity, so it gave a good chance to work on my running form.(Something I often neglect). I also liked the intensity build from 5.0 to 6.0 and the incline of 12 was good challenge. Def felt my legs/calves working! Pls. post more! Thanks!

I literally wrote this down on my purse notebook...going to try it tonight! Thanks for all the cardio ideas! I think I'm going to make up a binder or something. I'm so over just hopping on the elliptical for 30 minutes...it gets so boring!
