Spring and autumn provide the best temperatures for running, so if it is not raining, do not think twice, go enjoy the sunshine and the 65-75 degrees outside.
If you do not feel like running all the time, and want to spice up your sessions with some strength training, here are some ideas that you can implement outdoors, and which complement running really well.
Stretching and warmup can be followed by 5-10 minutes of jogging.
Mix of Lunges and Running
Do switch lunges for 30 seconds, followed by 1.5 minutes of jogging – three sets in total.
Having finished the previous exercise, run for one minute, followed by one pushup on a bench or on the ground. Repeat your one minute of running, followed by two pushups, then by three, and so on, until you reach ten rounds of running and pushups.
Mix of Squats and Running
Jog for one minute, followed by one squat. Repeat your one minute jog, followed by 2 squats, then three. Increase your number of squats gradually until you reach ten rounds of both.
You can extend your workout this way to about an hour.
