Workout session of the month (WSOM)

Pin It
I know I haven't posted a new workout since Spring but things have been busy (workout -wise) with injury and training for races. So if you've been waiting for a new routine to ramp up your fitness for the summer...here's one for you.

Now that its warm, there's tons of cardio exercise you can do outdoors such as walking, running, swimming, hiking, biking etc... just make sure that you are well-hydrated ad take breaks from the heat from time to time. Listen to your body!


Warning: Before beginning any fitness regimen, seek advice from your health care provider. If you feel any pain during your workout, stop immediately and seek medical attention. Pay attention to proper form (quality before quantity). Listen to your body, start out slow then advance.
