If you want to be successful, you have to put in the work…every single day. You don’t have to kill it…small efforts repeated day in and day out make all the difference!
I saw that Alison took it back to Day 1 over in New Zealand, so I figured we’d follow her lead. Day 1 was a full body compound movement video that everyone loved so let’s do it again.
Also on Day 1 we did the No Junk Food Challenge….with Christmas in just a few days, let’s get ready for all the yuminess coming our way and take a day to detox first! No Junk Food today y’all! Can you do it? Put down the junk…just for 1 day!
Day 20 exercises:
- Full Body Compound Workout Video

What you will need: If you don’t have this equipment substitute and make it work! Your dumbbells will work just fine in place of the medicine ball and kettle bells.
- Kettle bell or dumbbell
- Jump rope (or just pretend you’re using a jump rope and simulate the exercise
- Medicine Ball – Or you can use your dumbbell for this too

Speed Work: Introduce, Improve, Perfect – 6x – 8X 1/4 mile repeats

Work-Out – 6-8 x 1/4 Mile Repeats at a pace that is :30 faster than your race pace.

1/4 Mile is equivalent to 400 meters or one lap of a standard-sized track. Here’s a few examples of where your interval times would range, depending on your mile time.
- If you run a 13:00/mile, you should run the quarter-mile repeats in 2:45
- If you run a 12:00/mile, you should run the quarter-mile repeats in 2:30.
- If you run a 11:00/mile, you should run the quarter-mile repeats in 2:15.
- If you run a 10:00/mile, you should run the quarter-mile repeats in 2:00.
- If you run a 9:00/mile, you should run the quarter-mile repeats in 1:45.
