You can do anything for a minute! Equinox trainer Lauren Fairbanks shared this nugget of inspiration with me during a recent treadmill workout, which features 60-second bursts of speed. During the run, the pace for intervals keeps increasing until you get close to hitting a seven-minute mile — but only for a minute. With this quick-paced workout, you will likely not feel fully recovered before you start your next interval, but this will only make you a stronger runner. Lauren says, "You should feel pretty tired, or better yet, have a runner's high, after finishing."
Time flies when you're running fast; there's not a chance you'll get bored with this workout. Ready to put Lauren's one-minute mantra to the test? Check out the workout when you read more.
