You should always try and have fun when you run. I like to mix my runs up when I'm alone doing sprints from one tree to the next. Lately I have been doing three crossfit exercises when I'm running. It goes like this run 1 mile(on short runs up to 8 miles) Longer runs I will run 5 miles and do the work-out. then do three crossfit moves doing 33 reps( I have a thing for the number 3). I usually do box jumps on a bench, burpees, air squats, push ups using the bench and lunges. I need to buy a jump rope and carry it in my pack so I can do double unders.
Happy running heading to crossfit after a 10 mile run :)
Box jumps aka bench jumps
Walking lunges. Bad form my knee should not be that far foward.

"Change, disruption or obstacles could be the order of the day! There is a reason for each of these occurrences but in general it can be said that the way in which you are doing things, or viewing things, has to change. Very often the universe takes a hand and helps you by clearing away the debris of the old, but be assured that what is right, essential or just plain needed, will remain in place. In all cases be calm in the face of these unexpected events and just know that everything is going to be all right. © Stephen Haynes"
