Stroller intervals:

This is a fun one I do with my 3 year old, Wyatt.  He is in preschool and loves to count!  When we first started doing these intervals, he would always get stuck at 7,8,9.  So, we both would have to start back and #1.  I would end up with a longer interval and he eventually learned how to count to 10.  Now we are working on counting to 20, so you can imagine my intervals can be quite long.

This is a great workout for all fitness levels and ages.  If you are just getting started, walk between intervals and then jog when your kids are counting.  If you are ready to step it up a level run/sprint:

400 meter repeats:

  • 12 minute warm-up: Do each of the following for 1 minute and then repeat 1 more time through- walking, jogging, walking lunges, leg swings, arm circles, planks.  THEN…
  • Time yourself as you run 1 lap around the track as fast as you can (pushing your jogging stroller if you have one).
  • Take a 90 second recovery and then repeat 4 more times.  Ideally, each lap should be faster than the previous.  *Make sure to take a 90 second break between each set.

Sled Drag: 

Assisted plyometrics with the jogging stroller:

This is a great one for those just getting back into it.  Holding onto the stroller and pressing down through the handles while during squat jumps and lunge hops helps you to land softer and takes weight off your joints (less impact).  I recommend doing 15-20 reps of each, every 5 minutes throughout your planned run/walk. Warning:  Your arms will get just as tired as your legs and lungs!
