Let’s Get Wild! {A Cross-Training Workout For Runners}

Happy Wednesday!

First off, congrats to Sam – you won the Meal Enders sample!

I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start! Monday’s episode of The Bachelor kicked things off well for me; I am absolutely LOVING this season and Chris is now down to just 2 girls! I was kind of happy Kaitlyn was sent home on Monday because I actually really like her and don’t think Chris (and Iowa) were right for her. Here’s to hoping she’s the next bachelorette! Haha, apparently Entertainment Tonight agrees with me on this -> 9 Reasons Why Kaitlyn Bristowe Should be the Next Bachelorette.

Kaitlyn from the Bachelor.But anyways…

Today, I wanted to share a workout I created as part of a new link-up I’m participating in! It’s the Wild Workout Wednesday Link-up (hence, the title… what did you think I meant?!), hosted by AnnMarie of The Fit Foodie Mama, Angelena Marie of Happy, Healthy, and Balanced, Upala of Pretty in Pink Fitness, and Amber of Bold Fit Mom.

Wild Workout Wednesday.I’m not a personal trainer, but I created this workout to incorporate some of the moves that I’ve learned are good for strengthening quads and glutes – something runners can try to do to help prevent pesky runner’s knee issues (like I’m experiencing currently). I also added some core exercises to help keep it interesting. 🙂

I tested it out on Monday, and this workout will definitely have you breaking a sweat. The trick is to go through it fairly quickly- try to keep any rest breaks to a minimum. I was pretty pooped by the end of those 30 minutes. 🙂

As much as I enjoy these types of workouts, I’m REALLY looking forward to this weekend’s relay race!! The Clearwater Distance Classic was my last race, just over a month ago, and I’ve started experiencing symptoms of race withdrawal again (i.e., longingly reading other bloggers’ race recaps, scrolling through lists of different race registrations… you know, normal things.) Hopefully, my knee will cooperate, even though it’s a hilly course. I’ll keep you posted on how it turns out!

Have a happy Hump Day! Tp the runners out there- do you experience race withdrawal when you haven’t done one in a while?

    I totally get race withdrawal! I haven’t raced since mid-December and I keep looking up races and hovering over the registration buttons haha. Good luck at the relay!
