5 week lockdown work out




Weekly goal: 10km and to build strength through body weight exercises.


Some of you felt the 10 weeks 250km run challenge was too much for you so I put together a challenge for those who wanted to run twice a week around 10km and will have the added benefit of making you a stronger runner too. Adding the exercises into the program in the middle of the run makes you have to run with fatigued muscles which have built lactate and that then needs to be cleared for you to run on.

20 Press up - find wall or fence and press up resting hands on there. (shoulders and abs)
