It’s a sunny day… Are you getting your vitamin-D?

The weather in Chicago was gorgeous today!  I ran about 3.5 miles along the lake and then walked 1 mile with the pupster.  Being outdoors during the summer is a wonderful way to obtain vitamin-D which is more readily absorbed best from the sun versus food and/or supplementation.   However it is important to minimize your time outside due to the downside/risks of ‘too much’ sun exposure,  basically small increments outside are ideal and load up on the sunblock (…think 65+ = gold star status).  Vitamin-D promotes calcium absorption in the gut.  When trying to absorb more calcium for dietary or physical aspects – include vitamin-D.

Now that I am all settled I can resume my regular fitness schedule.  Here’s the workout which was short and sweet but a mix of everything:

*All exercises and repetitions were cycled ten times

  • 10 burpees
  • 10 pushups
  • 1 minute straight arm plank
  • Pull-ups (AMRAP; as many reps as possible; wide-grip)
  • 10 jump squats
  • 10 hanging leg raises
