Outdoor Exercise- Welcome Spring!

By lisa.klein - Posted on 16 April 2014

Now that Spring is finally here, time to shed those winter clothes and get outside and get moving! Remember, it is a myth that you can't get a good workout without going to the gym. Head out to your local park for walking/running trails, bike trails, or family recreation, such as a game of tag, basketball, softball, kickball- be creative! If you're looking for something hard core, try mixing in plyometrics (jump squats, burpees, mountain climbers on the curb) in your run or walk at regular intervals, such as every 15 minutes, every mile, or some visual cue, such as at every corner, every left turn... You can also add in walking lunges, side squats, push ups, dips on the curb or planks. Your body weight will provide all the resistance you need! So grab your sneakers and just walk out the door. You'll feel energized and invigorated by some much needed sunshine and a connection with nature.

Just a tip for those that want to get outside and exercise in the spring weather! You never know when a rain shower may pop up unexpectedly or if there's a heavy dew in the morning. In case your shoes get wet, I have the perfect way to dry them out. If they get soaked, just take your local newspaper or mail advertisement inserts and stuff a few balls of paper in your shoes. By the next morning, the paper will have soaked up the remaining moisture in the shoe leaving them dry!
