Legs for Leggings Fall Pyramid Workout

Biltmore Run

Fall has arrived in the mountains.  It’s not just the calendar, it’s the cool overnight weather.  It’s only going to take a few of these forty degree nights before the leaves start popping.

I went to the Biltmore Estate Monday for a morning run and for the first time there was a crisp breeze in the air.

Workers were even clearing out the sunflower fields.  I never quite caught the full bloom sunflowers again this year.  I was there right before and right after the peak.  Next year, maybe.

Things are about to get even more beautiful around here.  As you can imagine, fall is spectacular in Western North Carolina.  I’m hoping to make it to the some of the higher elevations this fall to take some pictures of the mountains with my new fancy camera.

In the meantime let’s talk fall workouts.  The first warmer piece of clothing I pull out are leggings.  They are so easy to wear and pair with just about everything when the weather is cooler.  I seriously could live in them.

Here is my BONUS workout for looking my best in leggings.  I call it a bonus because I add it onto one of my normal workout routines or runs.   It only takes 10 minutes to get through.  You can totally do it on it’s own though, the lunges alone will make you feel the burn!

    Great “bonus” workout! I will have to add it on after my run tonight. It’s supposed to not get above 70 today. Finally! Perfect running weather : )

      That is perfect! I’m finally starting to feel “fally.” Wore leggings and bought mums today:-)

    Love the workout! I know the season and leaves will be over before it really even begins so I’m definitely excited to get out and experience it all!

    I love it! Barbell squats and deadlifts, for the win! I’m going to add your bonus workout to my leg day on Friday, so if I can’t walk afterwards, I’ll know who to blame.

      Haha! I have sore legs from testing it! Good sore though!

    I liked the way your pictures captured the crisp fall feel in the air that you described for your morning run at Biltmore.
