Gummy Bear Legs

As a continue to prepare for a half marathon, my workouts include a mix of sprints and weight lifting. I love repetition in workouts so that I can zone out and focus on the exercise (#simplifyyourlife).
For running, I push myself to a sprint pace for shorter distances and slow down as needed for the 0.5 mile sets. Listen to your body and choose a challenging but doable pace.

For this workout you need:
-Legs ready to work
-A track, treadmill, or estimated 0.25 mile
-Dummbells-heavy and light set
-Lat pulldown machine, bands, or pull-up bar
