Today was the first workout I had done in 7 days. It was quite an experience so I thought I would share it with you.
We headed out into the crisp, -1° Celcius morning to find a place to do our workout. The cool air seemed to find its way into every exposed crevice, feeling kind of like you were sniffing up small shards of ice.
Seeing as we hadn’t done any formal exercise since we left – other then a whole heap of walking and some exercise of the mouth in the form of tasty eating – we decided that we would keep this workout simple.
The Workout – Quick Sticks
Warm up with a jog to a nice flat area for sprinting along. Follow up with some mobility exercises and dynamic stretches.
Complete five rounds:
- 40m Sprint immediately followed by…
- 10× Squats
- Then walk 40m
- 10× Push Ups
- Rest for around 30-40 seconds.
Walk back home and have a good stretch. This should take around 30 minutes total.
Below are some lovely pictures of our training location at the lake near my Auntie and Uncle’s house in Ames, Iowa.
