Hill Repeats

Our Saturday workouts during the summer are always rain or shine. Lightening, though, will typically keep us indoors and result in a cancelled workout. Sad, yes, but safety is important. This Saturday at 6:30, we were meant to meet up at lock and dam #1 by Minnehaha Park. The weather had other plans and a thunderstorm rolled in around 6 am, resulting in a cancelled workout. Who knows, maybe a few intrepid souls slogged their way though the lightening, thunder, and downpour, but not me. Bummer, because this would have been fun. We’ll save it for some other Saturday.
What you need: 
An approximately 400-ish meter, moderately steep hill. Note: you could probably do this with a treadmill set to an incline, but you’ll miss the lovely downhill recovery jog.
The workout:
Run once up hill
50 Rotating drop push-ups (25 per side)
Jog down hill and run back up
50 Skaters
Jog down hill and run back up
50 Russian twist (25 per side)
Jog down hill and run back up
50 Jump squat
Jog down hill and run back up
50 Knee to elbow (in plank position; 25 per side)
Jog down hill and run back up
50 Explosive lunges (25 per side)
