I just got done doing this...made a few revisions (my treadmill only goes to 10 incline and i did 3.0 and 5.0 to start ;) But i really liked it and the time went by really quick!! I will definitely be doing this more often...thanks :)

Hey Angela!

I'm glad you liked it! Yes, I love that it goes by quick too....long cardio can get SOOO boring if you don't change it up!!!

I'll keep posting them as I do them!

Gave this my best shot last night. Followed it up until the incline of 10 and brought the speed 5 down to 4.5. Brought the incline back down from there (instead of going to 15) doing speeds of 3.5 and 4.5 down to incline 7. Then from incline 6 back down I went back to speeds of 4.0 and 5.0 and finished it off with a 1 minute sprint at speed 9.0. I'll keep going back to this one until I do it complete.
