01/31/2017 Dual workout, run and cross training

A view on today's run
Well, the weather has me switching it up again.  Tuesday is normally my long run day, but two weeks in a row, the weather is a no no on Tuesday.  Today, it's 30, breezy, and snowing.  Tomorrow, it's going to be low to mid 40's and sunny.  I decided, pretty quickly to do my longer run tomorrow and do a shorter, 5 miler today.  I went at a comfortably efficient pace today and ran my 5 miles in about 38:50, a pace of about 7:45/mile.  It wasn't difficult, but it wasn't a jog either.

After walking back inside, I wasted no time in getting into a short workout of the exercises below.

The workout wasn't very long, or involved.  However, I'm not always going to be that deliberate with my cross training.  I am sometimes going to just add a few exercises to a workout and I am good with that.  It's better than not, and it wasn't a big deal to add.  I like the variety, as well as the chance to branch out from the run.
