Get outside this spring and workout! Mix it up by adding strength moves to any run.
When the weather warms up I literally want to spend all my time outside. I'd even be happy with an outdoor office 🙂 Especially if I could somehow be outside, but not have the pollen. But that's a story for another day.
I decided to create a workout that you can do outside, but isn't just straight running. It's great for those of you who are maybe in a running slump, want to mix it up or can't seem to run for 30 minutes straight.
Start with a nice walking warm-up and active stretch and finish a walking cool-down and some deeper stretches.
Do the workout once for a solid 30 minute workout or double for a close to an hour extravaganza of fitness fun.
Here are a few workout tips!
Do the Tricep Dips on a bench.
Make sure no one is running right behind you before you stop to do the circuits. 🙂
For an extra challenge do the plank leg lifts on a curb.
Another way to add intensity is to increase the speed of your run each circuit.
Do it with a friend for competition and fun!
Thanks for stopping by today! Come back tomorrow a delightfully simple summer taco salad.

Do you ever take your workouts outside?

When I was coaching cross country I loved giving them workouts like this that combine running with challenging body weight exercises. Now that I don't coach them anymore I guess I'll have to do the workout myself :-). Thanks for linking up!
I hope it works well for you.
This looks like a great way to switch up a workout! Hopefully this warming weather trend will continue!
It's so cold and windy now :-(((( I feel like spring is mocking me! 🙂
Love workouts like this that include running! So fun! Thanks for linking up and sharing 🙂
Thanks for hosting!

Thanks Rachel! Hopefully soon.

I love these kinds of workouts! When I was in Florida, I actually saw a mom running on the beach with her little guy, and they'd stop every couple of minutes to do some kind of activity, like jumping jacks, push ups, etc.
How much fun! What a great way to instill fitness in her son.

I love that it's finally warming up so we can spend more time exercising outdoors!
I agree! I want the warm weather back.

Now if only it would stay nice enough to do this outside! Thank you for linking up!
I know! It's yucky outside here this weekend too. No snow though.
Deborah @ Confessions of a mother runner says
It is fun to throw in a few outdoor moves post run when the weather is nice! Now just need it to warm up!
I know! It was so nice and now it's so yucky! Bring back spring.
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy says
I can't wait for the nicer weather to get here to the UK as I want to make the most of outdoor workouts. I just feel so much better after them.
Me too! Hope it warms up soon there. It's kind of nasty here this weekend too.
