How do I do drills and strides on a treadmill?

Drills and strides are an important part of the warmup, but we do not recommend performing them on a treadmill.  It's difficult to set the treadmill to the appropriate speed for each drill.  The risk of falling or tripping is too high.  If your gym has a long hallway or basketball court, do your drills in there.  If not, follow these steps:
  • Run a little extra for your warmup jog on the treadmill
  • Pause the treadmill
  • Drink some water
  • Try out some of these Active Warm Up exercises on solid ground.  (They don't require as much space as our regular drills routine.)
  • Get back on the treadmill for your first interval.
