Running and Jogging is not something I do often. I kinda like my Knees and shins just the way they are. And at age 50, can’t see any real benefit in pounding the pavement everyday.  But, occasionally I get an urge to run.  So I go to my local park and put in a couple of miles.

To make it interesting, I incorporate a few strength exercises along the way.  I have found this to really add to the workout. I guess it helps ME because, in addition to the above. Jogging can get to be a bit boring.  Especially running around a track.  Which is something I haven’t done in years.

By adding some body weight exercises to your jogging routine you create a great interval workout and reduce boredom at the same time (read efficient).  Did I mention no equipment required.

Here is the workout I have planned for today:

  • Start off at a slow pace
  • after 5 minutes pick up speed (still jogging, not running)
  • at 3 min. stop – 20 power squats
  • resume jog
  • after 2 min sprint equivalent of about 20 yards
  • resume jog
  • at 3 min. stop – 20 push ups
  • resume jog
  • after 2 min. sprint
  • resume jog
  • at 3 min. stop – 10 reverse lunges (stepping back)
  • resume jog
  • after 2 min. sprint
  • resume jog
  • after 3min stop – 20 crunches
  • follow with Walking Stretch Routine

This should take all of 30 min. to complete. You can use this as is or replace with your own exercises and intervals.
