Legs and Cardio- Round 1

As implied, you probably won’t be walking right for the next few days. Take at your own pace; since its cardio, you probably won’t be able to finish very quickly. Each time you do this workout, time yourself- and try to improve that time every session! Be sure to stretch afterward too! Why is stretching so important?
