Parkour Run

With the emphasis on running this week, today we're going to go for another medium-short run, but this time adding some elements of parkour movement along the way.

Go for a light jog, trying to emphasize efficient form (Tuesday's WOD). This time, when you see a wall, vault it or climb it, when you see a rock or fallen long, jump to it or run along it, when you see a police car do a giant frontflip over i... nevermind.. It''s important to be safe with this drill, don't do anything big (even if you've done it before, you'll be in a different state) don't do anything that even looks a little bit sketchy.  The point is not to do a lot of parkour moves, but rather to cover a lot of space and see how a bit of parkour movement affects your pace. Only do parkour moves every few minutes, not constantly. Aim for about 20-25 minutes total.
