Human beings are made up of flesh and blood, and a miracle fiber called courage.
— George Patton
Tomorrow, plan on making your run a little longer. Not in miles, but in duration. Do this by planning the following strength set at the midpoint of your run.
3 x 25 body weight lunges (each leg)
3 x 10-30 burpees
3 x 1-2 minute plank
3 x 25 body weight squats
You can either run to the gym, or, what might be easier, an athletic field or playground, keeping this destination around the midpoint of your run.
Beginners – try and make your workout 1 hour.
Intermediate – Try and make your workout 2 hours.
Advanced – Bring a sandbag and don’t come home till you’re toast.
Why drive to a gym if you can run there?
