Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
— Michael Jordan
Tomorrow, plan on making your run a little longer. Do this by planning the following strength set at the midpoint of your run. You can either run to the gym, or, what might be easier, an athletic field or playground, where you can even plan on meeting other athletes to help push you through your body weight exercises.
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
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 your toast.
