On Thursdays, Elizabeth's husband has classes in the evening so when we run, we have to choose small repetitive loops so her stepdaughter can play where we can keep an eye on her. (This isn't a problem because her stepdaughter is hilarious and also doesn't mind taking a million pictures of our workouts!)
But loops can get boring, so this week we brought along our dumbbells to change things up. It felt a little weird and a lot awesome to complete our circuit out in the parking lot of our local park.

.33 @ 10:30 & 24 bicep curls
.33 @ 11:00 & 12 tricep dips (turtle time!)
.33 @ 8:41 & 12 presses (making up for turtle time?!)
.33 @ 8:51 & 12 Arnolds
.33 @ 9:11 & 24 bicep curls
.33 @ 9:15 & 12 tricep dips
.33 @ 9:20 & 12 presses
.33 @ 9:25 & 12 Arnolds
Overall I was really happy with this workout. I felt strong and we finished feeling accomplished; I know this is one we'll repeat sometime in the future!
How do you change up repetitive or boring workouts?
Have you found any cool wildlife on a run lately?
