Workout Wednesday - Enjoy the Fall Air

I am loving this weather and wanting to be out as much as possible. So today's workout takes us back to the track out in this cool crisp air.
I recognize that not everyone likes to run, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't do it every once in a while. I read a great article not too long ago that talked about true fitness being able to run to safety, pick up your kids, etc. So, even if you don't like to run, you should be able to run some. Just don't head out for a marathon.
Hopefully by now you all have discovered your local track, for me that is one of the local high schools. I am super lucky because I have two high school within a couple miles from me, and both have great mountain views for me to enjoy.

As always make sure you get in a good warm up. You don't want to jump straight into anything to crazy.

Lap 1:
Lunge for 100 m (remember a track is 400 m)
Sprint 300 m
15 pushups
30 sec plank

Lap 2:
Broad jump for 100 m
Sprint 300m
15 tricep pushups on each side
10 v-ups

Repeat 2-4x.

Listen to your body and push accordingly. The best thing you can learn to do for yourself is develop the ability to truly listen to your body and respect yourself enough to respond accordingly.
