Lost Your Mojo? Start Your 7-Day Flat Belly Challenge Now...

bexhill runOn Sunday morning I was up early, as is usually the case when you’ve got kids. However…

I managed to get up and out for a cheeky run.

The sun was shining and I thought rather than staying indoors I should get out and about. So…

I got my trainers on and my tunes ready and off I popped, even had to stop a take a pic it was so nice out.

I was out for about 40 minutes or so. But…

Rather than just running at the same speed for the entire 40 minutes, which can be a bit dull,  I decided to break up the run.

What I mean is that I’d run for 5-10 minutes then throw in some bodyweight exercises.

It’s a great way to break up a long run, especially if you’re not a keen runner.

In fact, this is exactly what I did…

+ Run for 10 minutes
+ Squats x 20 and lunges x 10/leg for 3 rounds
+ Run for 5 minutes
+ Pistol squats x 10/leg for 3 rounds
+ Run for 5 minutes
+ Bodyweight rows (using a bicycle parking rack) x 15 and tricep dips x 20 for 3 rounds
+ Run for 10 minutes

This was a fairly low key workout, I wasn’t trying to bust myself up or anything like that.

Oh-no, I was just out enjoying the sun while getting an ickle sweat on.

You see, you don’t always need to go all-out with a killer workout.

That’s certainly not the way to go if you’re in this health and fitness lark for the long-haul.

It pays to balance your workouts, otherwise you’ll just see each workout as a chore and we can’t have that now, can we? :)

I really enjoyed being out in the sun and even had a bit of a sing-song to myself as I was running along too.

And you know something, you can do this sort of workout too…

Next time the sun is out in your neck of the woods, use this style of workout and embrace being healthy and active.

Ta-ta for now,
