800 Meter Newbies

With the Mud Run coming up, you all may notice a bit more running in the programming.  That’s not because we don’t like you guys…or because we want to make you suffer in this 100+ degree weather…it’s because we want to win the race…ha!  Just kidding…really it’s because a bit of running will do all of us good and help to prep us for the run!

Last Saturday if you were in Low Intensity you got to experience a bit of running, skipping, jumping that I programmed.  The workout (which I am posting because it can easily be done at home, at a park or wherever you want to do it) went as follows.

800m Run/Lunge Fence Line (about 75m)/Skip Back/20 GOOD Pushups

600m Run/Broad Jump Fence Line/Skip Back/20 GOOD Push Press

400m Run/Skaters Fence Line/Skip Back/20 GOOD Pullups or Body Rows


The class rocked it!  I have to highlight a few women specifically who ran their FIRST “Baja and back” (800m)!!!  I didn’t realize it was their first until after the class was over.  These women took off with the rest of the class and did as I asked…maybe with a  bit of doubt in their heads and there may have been a whine or two…but they crushed it and ran the whole thing!  SO SO SO proud of each of you…HUGE accomplishment.  Be proud of yourself!

    Got to the top of the rope for the first time; I walked with a pep in my step for the rest of the day.
