Ready for a challenge?




So I was reading the Trail Running Goddesses Blog when I came across this little gem, "I had a great run/WOD today. Ran 7 miles . Every mile I did 50 squats and 50 Lunges. I call it the leg killer because by the end my legs are killing."



Here is the Challenge

-Run 7 miles
-After each mile stop do 50 squats or 50 lunges
-After the 7th mile do 60 squats

No Cheating...






Quads were on Fire!

No. I'm not ready. Didn't someone say something about Chocolate Peanut Butter in a blog close to this one? I'm sure a nap will help me get ready.

Continuation: I wouldn't get back up..

Jo Lynn said...

Would that be 50 lunges per leg or walking lunges at each mile?
Just curious. ;)

My legs would fall off, but I think I will try it. That is a hardcore workout!

Shannon said...

It was tough, but if you have a strong base in your running then you can do this! It changes things up. :)

Shannon said...

@ Jo Lynn....just stop running and do the squats. Catra did 50 squats AND 50 lunges, but I'm not smoking enough crack to do that one! hehe

Jon Gilchrist said...

DAMN!! I love it. Gonna need to try that this weekend!!!

Varinka said...

awesome Shannon!! I usually do the leg workout before the running but I must try your workout next time! Good job girl!

Superman said...

Is this just for warm ups? Are the squats and lunges one legged or two? Are the miles all sub 7:00 pace or faster? When can you advance this beginner's exercise to something a little more challenging?

I am w/Shirley. Actually, I think I have to take the day off and not run tomorrow after reading this.
