Booo! Halloween & Humpday WOD

You can wear what ever costume you want today, if you’re into that. However you do need to wear a ruck for the workout since it is a pre-requisite for today.

Although you will burn over 1🎃🎃calories on this workout it does not give you permission to eat like crap though. It’s the start of the comfort foods time of the year, and I agree it will be fantastic and delicious when you indulge.

You hold the key though to mitigate the sleepyhead feeling from too much turkey, the sugar high from the pies, candy apples, candied yams, and all of the deserts that are passed around or bought frequently so that everyone can share. Go ahead and eat it, however you should not put yourself in a position to derail everything you’ve worked for at this time of year.

Guilt is a motivator for some, yet it is unhealthy. It makes some people resentful, and bitter for letting go and over indulging. Avoid the guilt, and enjoy with family and friends what is special about being together and sharing good food. Portion size is an individual measurement, and should be sought after with guided assistance by a nutritionist, dietitian and those around you that can help you monitor what, and how much you stuff your face with.

Happy 🎃 Halloween! Boo!

Time to freeze!

Well the temps are dropping in October which means break out your winter running gear kids, because it’s going to be a warm workout. You’ll be running the bridge today, and it’s sure to get the blood circulation up and will keep your wheels rolling.

    Going up?

    Hill repeats can wear on you both physically and mentally especially if they’re a high repetition and long spanning bridge that you have to cover. You get into a groove, and just get it over with trying your hardest not to hate life in the process. It does make you appreciate flat terrain more though.

    Today we have a short length, and not so high a bridge to do repeats on, and you’ll have only two repeats to cover! Yes, Two!

    However there is a meat of exercises to perform in between the repeats so you’ll have something else to think about instead of the drudgery of the ups and downs of hill repeats.

    Today we’re at Roos Recreation Center in Forest Park, IL

    I can ruck to Mississippi like this…

    Total commitment to your well being is nothing short of having to put forth all of your effort to being healthy. No shortcuts of any type. Attitude is everything for you to achieve your goals.

    Put on the ruck, take the step one at a time and cover the distance. Do the work. It is life changing when you go and become uncomfortable during the workout. Step outside of your comfort zone often, and it will alter your mental make up. There is something about achieving what you once deemed unattainable.

    Today we’re going to challenge you to take that step with us at Roos Recreational Field, Forest, Park, IL
