Every year I try to accomplish some sort of birthday run to incorporate the literal number of years I have been alive into my training. Some years it's a birthday month-long goal, others it's a week-long. This year it was just one run on my birthday. I chose to do intervals, which is the type of training I do most often these days having a toddler on board. So I set out with my little guy to bring in my 33rd year in the Cleveland Metroparks with this workout:
So hey! Start off your birthday year with a physical challenge! It can be as simple as 33 squats or as complex as 33 x 33 minute runs over the course of your birthday month. Use your age to be specific about your movement and be creative enough with this number to challenge the difficultly. You can use your number to change distance, repetitions, time, intervals, you name it! Default to more difficult and you'll be so glad you did.
If you are a parent and you've never run with a jogger before, check out this old post I wrote about how to get started. It's way less intimidating then it seems!
Please share in the comments what you try out or what you've done in the past!
