Spring Cross Training: Mow the Lawn

There are many ways to cross train that don't have to involve a trip to the gym, and in the spring, runners with yards can feel that they get twice the benefits by mowing the lawn.

First, you get a nicer looking lawn, so you aren't an embarassment to the neighborhood.

Second, you get a total body workout. Pushing the mower works your legs, (especially if you have hills to deal with) as well as your shoulders and back. If you haven't mowed a lawn since last spring, you'll feel like you have had a bit of a workout!
