hybrid circuit/interval/speed combo

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!

Check out my weekend Holiday Festivities.

In honor of my Finish Strong Series, my friend/blogger Shannon sent me this awesome workout.

You can set out for a one or two mile courses (and warm up with a mile if you wish) depending on your time.  If you want to up your ante, make each .25 a little faster than the last!

Run .25 miles
First break, dips
Find a bench, stairs, curb and do two sets of 8 dips
Run .25 miles
Second break, walking lunges
20 total; or 2 sets of 10 with a break in between
Run .25 miles
Third break, abs of your choice for one minute
Run your heart out to finish the mile!

If you're doing a two mile course, repeat, but add different arm, ab, butt/leg exercises.

Thanks Shannon!

This morning I made Cranberry Pumpkin Scone Oatmeal. Let’s just say I am in heaven :).

I basically topped my normal whipped banana oats with a ton of goodness!

  • Fresh Cranberries
  • Walnuts
  • 1/4 Vegan Pumpkin Scone
  • Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
  • and a splash of Rice Nog!
