Get It Up, Your Heart Rate That Is: Outdoor Run With Sprints

Since the majority of you said that you prefer to exercise outdoors, I thought that this week's Get It Up (cardio workout) should take you outside and get you running.

Time Activity RPE
00:00-05:00 Warm up with a brisk walk/slow jog 2-3
05:00-08:00 Jog/run 6-7
08:00-08:30 Sprint 8-9
08:30-30:00 Repeat the previous two steps six times 6-9
30:00-35:00 Cool down with a brisk walk/slow jog 2-3

Gym goers can also use this program on the treadmill, just adjust the speed accordingly. Also, if you liked this workout then be sure to check out all my great cardio workouts.

Hahaha, Syako! I thought the same thing, but then I figured she must just be wearing some sort of sports bra thing (let's hope!).

I'll try to motivate myself to do this. It's a shame because I live directly across from a park with running lanes. I do need some sort of cardio in the morning, I'm so sluggish when I get into work.
