SeaMade: Surf Cross Training | Core A series on surf, cross training and lessons on all things salty by guest blogger, Madison

The core is essential to the strength of the entire body, so why is it that working my abs seems like the most torturous thing to do, ever?! For me, my abs aren’t exactly visible, thanks to my love of craft beer and chocolate, but hey- I know that I am strong from the inside out. When I work my core, it inspires me to keep the workout going and go running or surf or something, which will only lead to more unveiling of that secret six-pack. Ready ditch the keg and bring on the six-pack? Here is a quick workout that is sure to make your stomach feel like you just pounded a cup of Fire Ball.

Ok, this is a total personal preference post, per say. (Say that five times fast). But some of the best, most invigorating and motivating runs I’ve had in my life, were completely out of the blue, off the beaten path, or not pre meditated whatsoever.
We’re talking laying on the beach on a Saturday, standing up, and deciding to go for a quick run. Or driving home from work, and pulling over to do a trail run. Or one of my favorites, being in a new city and just going out and exploring the area with my own (very quickly moving) two feet for a little bit. In fact, I recommend keeping a pair of running shoes in your car at all times for this very reason.
I think what I like about this type of workout is this: Instead of driving to the gym to do a 30 minute run on the treadmill three scheduled days a week, it’s making fitness be a part of your daily life. A random run is as enjoyable to me as, let’s say, an out of the blue stop for some coffee, or a quick stop at your favorite boutique, or watching that fifth episode in a row of your favorite TV show you stream on Netflix (Friday Night lights. I miss you).
Random runs (to me) are a way of saying, hey I’ve made it to the point where I really DO enjoy being active, and it’s not a chore, but a way of life.
Hope that makes sense. Because I love them.
…in fact I might just go on one now.
