Jelly Roll shared his ‘morning exercise’ routine as he prepares for his next 5k

Jelly Roll has no plans of slowing down after completing his first ever 5k run.

On Wednesday, the country star’s wife, Bunnie XO – who also ran the 5k with Jelly Roll – uploaded a TikTok of his morning workout routine, which included swimming laps in their pool alongside their daughter Bailee.

As Jelly Roll swam, he excitedly shared his plans to run yet another 5k race by Thanksgiving this year.

“I’m going to make an announcement… you ready?” the Grammy-winner told his wife, before revealing, “5k by Turkey Day, baby!”

It was only earlier this month in May that Jelly Roll – born Jason Bradley DeFord – successfully completed his first ever 5k.

Over the course of his months-long training, he managed to lost a staggering 60 lbs.

Emotionally reflecting on his triumphant fitness journey, he told Entertainment Tonight, “I couldn’t walk a mile when I started trying to do this back in January. So the fact that we got 3-point-whatever it was, got it down, I felt really, really good about it.”

He further declared, “Next year, a half marathon! We’re saying it now, absolutely!”
