Workout #10:

If you have a treadmill set it to an 8-10% grade and approximately your 5k running pace. Do a tabata interval (8 times :20 work/:10 rest). The belt will need to be running constantly and you will need to jump on and off for each work period. Make sure to practice the jump on and off prior to the workout. This is a great workout though and you will get very curious looks from others. Check out this video for an example.

Space and equipment permitting also try to get some handstand works, pull ups or double unders in.

Time away from the gym is always great to work on your mobility. Go to mobilitywod.com and either go back to the first episode or search on the right hand side for any areas that you feel tight or limited. It's always quick and easy to spend some time in the couch stretch or even just try to get 10 minutes in the bottom of the squat.
