Workout 162 - Run for Boston

Today, we encourage you to dig out a race t-shirt, put on a pair of running shoes and go out for a run in honor of the Boston Marathon tragedy.  We mourn with those who were affected and their families.

Here is an interval run (26 minutes in length for each mile of the marathon).  If you are running indoors on a treadmill, use the incline settings to add terrain.

heel toe walks (1 minute)
lunges with hip flexor stretch (1 minute)
side shuffle (1 minute each side)
5 inchworms
