burpee/squat  10/2, 9/4, 8/6, 7/8, 6/10, 5/12, 4/14, 3/16, 2/18, 1/20, and reverse starting with 1/20 and working back up to 10/2

a few tabatas: 20 on 10 off for four rounds:  burpee and jumping jack, high knees and skaters, tuck jumps

Then the first 15 or so minutes of Yoga for Runners – it was awesome and made me realize just how tight I am, but it cut out on me partway through. I’ll definitely be trying it again…taking time for stretching is not my strong suit persay, but I’m trying!

I’ve been taking it as a slow running week and am looking forward to start building up my mileage.  I’ve been planking every night and trying to work the glutes as well with some basic theraband exercises.
