Workout of the Week: “Haunted Jaunt”
 

Warm Up: 10–20-minute run/jog followed by Kinetic/Active Stretching Drills (20 Yards of Skipping, butt kicks, karaoke, high knees, strides)
 
Haunted Jaunt @Washington Township Park (featuring a truly “Screamin’ Hill”)
This park boasts one of the staple sledding hills in Hendricks County, so of course it is time for another hill workout! After the warmup try to end up around the base of the sledding hill (near the red maintenance barn). You can choose to do these repeats on any section of the grass hill (the southside is less steep), or you can run it in the road (it’s uphill too). Please note-never stop jogging up the hill or during recovery. Be sure to pump those arms and drive those knees-hill running done right builds strength and can drastically improve form! One more good hill workout at Gibbs Park later in the summer!
    

  • Run from the base of the hill to the top and then roughly 50 LEVEL/flat ft past the top 
    • Recovery jog out onto the street and around down to the base of the hill
