Disclaimer: This is a free, volunteer, peer-led workout. I am not a professional. I have no knowledge of any injuries or fitness considerations. It is each person’s responsibility to be safe and modify exercises if you need to. The most important thing is that you don’t get hurt, and that you finish. Remember, the workout should be you vs you.          

OYO – Light Stretching to prepare for a ride and run.


Plan is simple. Set out on the trails for 30 minutes and come back. After the 1 hr ride we will transition into running shoes and hit the Butterworth trail for our 5k.

It was a great morning for the ride and our legs adjusted quickly to run.

That’s a wrap
