We had crossfit this morning and did a workout called the “Miracle Mile”. I think the reason they named it that, because it is a miracle if you can finish it ;). I kept telling myself only 1oo meters of lunges left. I thought I was pretty decent at doing lunges, but apparently I am not good at pushing through the lactic acid buildup in my ass ;). If you want to take your workout outside the gym, as hard as it was, I would definitely recommend doing the “Miracle Mile”. It is one of those workouts, that once you are done, you feel like you can take on the world and have pushed yourself harder than you thought you could!
25 Kettle Bell Swings (men 55 pds/ women 35 pds)

100m Walking Lunge
Run 400m (20/14 MED BALL)
*If you don’t have weights at home, get creative. Use milk jugs filled with sand, sand bags, and for Pete sake, use your kid if you have too ;), just get it done!
