New Year Workout!

Do you do anything special on New Year’s Day? Do you set resolutions for the upcoming year?

I typically don’t set any resolutions for the new year – any day is as good as any to make a change. I also don’t have any special traditions for the day, but I don’t think you can go wrong by starting a new year with people you love and doing what makes you happy. For me, that always includes a workout!


This workout is pretty simple actually. I set up camp at a treadmill with 3 different sets of dumbbells. Since I braved the crowded gym (and it was as crowded as ever) I ran on the treadmill and used different weights throughout the workout to be sure that I was challenged.

Start with 3 rounds of the first set, resting as needed, then hop on the treadmill for a mile. Catch your breath and start with 3 rounds of the second set. Run another mile then 3 rounds of set three. When you’re ready, run one last mile and end with 3 rounds of the fourth and final set. That’s 3 miles and full-body workout!
