It’s the last day of our Do Something Streak. You did it! Thirty days of at least 30 minutes of activity—anything you want—to streak doing something. And to get the year moving.

(And if you didn’t do the last 30 days with us, don’t worry. You can always start your streak any time you want and there’s a full 30 days of workout suggestions if you need inspiration. Or do your own thing; just do something!)

For our last day, we’re looking to combine all the things. If you live somewhere warm, we highly recommend getting some friends together and getting in some swimrun practice. There’s nothing like running around a lake, lagoon, or beach in a wetsuit or swimming in your shoes.

But if you don’t live somewhere warm, then we’re going to offer you a few combo workout suggestions. While we’ve seen Olympians bring their bike trainer to the pool to practice transitions, we won’t go that far. Here are some bike-strength, swim-strength, run-strength workout options; probably pick just one. All of these workouts are tabata style: 20 seconds hard, 10 seconds easy for four minutes, and then we take a break before the next round.
