Running a mile and do 100 squats is a big NOPE with a side of Zzzzzz. But a workout that consists of a quarter mile run and 25 squats alternating back and forth until you’ve done each four times (i.e. one mile and 100 squats) is more interesting. The quarter mile repeats should be run at a comfortably hard pace and the squats should be done as quickly as is safely possible (and with full range of motion). You can substitute other bodyweight exercises for the squats or change up the distance of the run depending on how much time you have.
