Street Run with Circuits across bridges

Today’s 3 mile run included 3 stops at 3 different bridges along my route for a mini body weight circuit; Walking Lunges down the bridge, Side Shuffle back, and 25 Tricep Incline Push Ups. This workout took about 45min to complete.

My warm up begins at the house with a total body roll out with a foam roller for no more than 5 minutes followed by a brisk walk for about a quarter of a mile to the start of my 3 mile run.

I was so happy to hit this bridge first because it’s the longest. It was about 75 walking lunges straight down!

Side Shuffles

Once I’ve reached the end of my loop, I’ll cool down with a quarter mile walk back home then static stretch for 5 to 10 minutes.

I LOVE this style of training and will post more with different exercises, so stay tuned for more workout ideas next week!

Have a great day!

Circuit 1 – Evening Street Cardio

One of my favorite workouts is hitting the pavement for a 3 mile run and a little circuit training. Here’s what I did:

My warm up is a total body roll with a foam roller for no more than about 5 minutes followed by a brisk walk for about a quarter of a mile.

Run 1 mile, stop and do 25 Squats, 25 Push Ups, 25 Bicycles & 25 Walking Lunges.

Run to mile 2 and repeat.

Run to mile 3 and repeat once more.

Cool down with another quarter mile walk and stretching for 5 to 10 minutes.

I LOVE this style of training and will post more with different exercises, so stay tuned for workout ideas! Have a great day!

Running with a twist

I woke up this morning realizing that I was out of coffee…crap.  Might as well brew up one of the ten or so tea blends I’ve been collecting and wanting to try someday. I experimented with an orange citrus green tea and sprinkled a chai blend over it.

Tasty but it just didn’t do it. I felt blah and had a foggy head all day today.

Since today was a rest day from strength training, I thought I’d go for a nice run to clear my cloudy head.  My friend Stephanie was just telling me about her recent run where she added burpees and jump squats and other exercises at every mile or so that reminded me of what I use to do running my Blockhouse Creek loop. 

I was only planning on a steady 4.5mi run but as soon add I hit the road I immediately felt an amazing energy that encouraged me to go breast mode!

I just got done running 5 miles with 10 burpees, 25 push ups, 25 plank jacks & 25 walking lunges at every mile! It was rough and I went to bitch stitch city, man my sides were cramping but I pushed through it!

EVERY TIME I do not feel like working out, I have THE BEST workouts!

Give it a shot, see where it takes YOU!
