Run Eat Repeat advises on the best things to eat and drink before and after long summer runs so that you can stay healthy all season.
I am obsessed with the Olympics. Are you? Over the last week I have watched swimming, diving, gymnastics, track and of course—the marathon this past weekend. It’s so exciting and inspiring!
So I’m asking you to channel that inspiration on your next run or workout. It’s easy to forget that these competitors have worked thousands of hours in dark cold gyms or early mornings on the track. It’s not always easy. You’re not always in the mood. There are good days and bad…but they all add up to make us better.
Today I’m sharing a fun workout with some Olympic themes to help keep us in the spirit of the games! Try it and you may get GOLD!
How to score your Olympics-Inspired Workout:
Give yourself 10 points for every exercise completed. Add 5 points if you didn’t complain. Subtract .1 point if you fell more than once. Subtract .2 points if you stopped at any point to check Instagram. Add 6 points if you said a cuss-word during the burpees.
If you scored more than 10 points, you get (a heart of) GOLD. Good job!
