Rosy Hodge has been riding for Roxy since she was a wee-grom and now is one of the faces of ROXY Outdoor Fitness. As a forever traveler, it’s not often Rosy is one place for too long but recently she was fortunate enough to stop off in her home country of South Africa for a couple days.
Regardless of where she is, one of her favorite things to stay active is wake up early, put on her favorite ROXY Outdoor Fitness ‘kit’, as she calls it, or Daybreak Top and Standard Running Tights and go explore.
Thanks to Rosy’s mama’s photog skills, we can get a glimpse into what early morning training looks like for her! Now it’s your turn to try…
I started running just over a year ago when I hurt my knee snowboarding. I find soft sand running is my favorite form of cardio. It gets the job done quickly. I will try and run for at least half an hour. Start with 20 minutes at your own pace and work your way up to half an hour or more.
I love being outdoors and improvising with what’s around me for my workout. I used a rock I found as a weight for Russian Twists. I will usually form a little circuit and do 15-20 reps of each 3 times.
Use a rock for your squats if you feel like it. Remember to keep your knees inline with your feet and don’t let them buckle in. Form is more important than number of reps.
Remember to keep your core strong, suck your belly button in towards your spine to make sure your core is engaged.
I find rock running is flipping difficult! I like to have a go at running over the rocks where I live. It helps with stability and gets your coordination firing. Tread carefully and try and predict your next few steps so you don’t get stuck or stumble.
At the end of your workout set a challenge for yourself, running up a steep dune as many times as you can (before you tear up and throw an exhaustion tantrum).
Remember to have fun and try things that add fun to outdoor activities.
I hope after your sunrise workout your body feels smashed but you have a smile on your face and you ready for a pretty good day.
