Spartan Run Workout from Military.com

I found this rather scary run/calisthenics workout in an article on The Best 20 Minute Workouts by Stew Smith on Military.com:

Spartan Run
1. Run 1 mile
2. 100 pushups in as few sets as possible
3. 100 crunches
4. Run 1 mile
5. 75 pushups in as few sets as possible
6. 75 crunches
7. Run 1 mile
8. 50 pushups in as few sets as possible
9. 50 crunches

I have a final, boring 30-minute run from the Runner’s World 5k training plan scheduled for tomorrow. Call me crazy, but I think I will take the opportunity to give this workout a go instead. I’ll still be getting in 30 minutes of running if I do the running at my slow jog pace of 6 mph.

I’ll let you all know if I throw up afterwards.

😉
