Quick Workout at the Playground

Really getting back into running this week and boy am I all over the place. Ran 2.5 mi on Monday and it was terrible! I felt awful. I was sluggish and tired, and I really believe the only thing that kept me going, and weaseled an extra sprint out of me was Zombies, Run! 

I held onto hope it was just an off day, and was rewarded on Wednesday when I ran 2.3 mi with Mr. C in the stroller. What an awesome run! I felt fantastic. I really could have kept going, and only stopped because he was getting ancy. We stopped at the playground and I did 2 sets of a quick workout (see below). That's how motivated I was! 

I wasn't satisfied though. I really wanted to break 3 miles. Tried again on Friday, yeah, no such luck. I did the same 2.3 mi distance, only this time I didn't have the stroller with me and it actually took longer for me to finish! Afterward I was tired and beat. (I blame it on Little Caesars and the soda I had the night before, not a good choice.)

Hopefully today I can get my act together and try again. Hydrated a lot more yesterday which should help immensely! 

Here is the workout I did at the playground with Mr. C. Kids love these kinds of workouts. My daughter is ecstatic whenever I start doing jumping jacks. 

Plus, playgrounds are great for things like incline push ups, there's always bars or benches around you can use!

How many sets can you do? Don't be afraid to workout while your kids play, they'll probably get into it too!
