Track workout

Every Sunday a group of friends from the gym and I have been doing workouts at the nearby highschool. It is a great way to get your cardio in without being confined to a treadmill. Going with friends is an added motivational booster as well. They will help you to continue going when your body is beginning to feel uncomfortable. Something about knowing friends are going makes it easy to get yourself out of the door without a pre-workout pep talk or rolling around on your bed while putting your gym clothes on, softly sobbing  thinking staying in bed sounds like a much better idea. It much easier to get through a workout that you see someone else suffering through too. 

   

Here is a Track Workout for you to try. FYI: I do not take credit for coming up with this workout–my amazing boyfriend who is incredible at programming is the mastermind behind this.  

Warm up: 800m run & stretching 

4 Laps (1 mile) : run the straights, jog/walk the bends 

  • 10m sprint
  • 20m sprint

  • 50m sprint
  • 60m sprint
  • 70m sprint
  • 80m sprint
  • 90m sprint

  • REST –as long as it takes you to walk back to starting line

4 rounds:

  • 10 squat jumps 
  • Run sideline to sideline
