This was unintentional. We had to get up at 4am for a flight to Texas and I was totally planning on going for a run when we got in. But…between getting the babies settle, all four of us unpacked and grocery shopping for the week, it simply didn’t happen…
3.8 mile trail run in Austin, TX
2.4 mile trail run along the river in Austin
I found a stone wall that was about knee height and did the following set:
With LEFT leg on the wall, step the right knee up to meet your elbow at about belly button height x15
With LEFT leg still on the wall, reach right leg back into an extended lunge and go down in a lunge at low as you can, keeping your hips square ahead of you, back knee at 90 degrees and making sure the knee on the wall doesn’t go past your ankle
Keep the RIGHT leg where it is from the previous exercise and move LEFT leg out to the side for a lateral lunge, keeping the RIGHT leg straight.
Move immediatelty into a curtsey lunge: LEFT foot moves behind the body and to the outside of the right leg. This is one rep.
–try to complete one side without resting and then immediately going into the other leg, though 3 times each side.
I then used the wall for a push up: hands on the wall, legs on the ground, focusing on keeping my core tight, arms wide and going down slowly
Immediately go into triceps: hands on the wall with knuckles facing your butt. Decsend so your elbows go straight behind you and are 90 degrees.
Complete the second set three times through, without resting. Your arms will be shaking!
