I'm an endurance runner. This journal tracks my performance since the addition of circuits and spinning into my training. Always keep pushing. You will never know your limits unless you go looking for them.

No time to get the run in I was planning this morning, so this circuit happened instead. Great cardio and more of a full body workout than a run.
Yesterday’s workout was a good one. The warmup is inspired by the Insanity Max Interval Workout warmup, so if you’ve ever done that workout it will be familiar. Personally, I think it is the the most challenging of the Insanity workouts. Some day I’ll put together a sister circuit to that one (when I feel like dying).
I thought this circuit would have taken longer this morning but it went rather quickly. It was enough to get sweaty but not enough to make sore muscles. I think next time I’ll increase the burpees for more cardio.
The flying plank reaches are a new move for me. Starting from a plank position, raise one arm straight out in front while raising the opposite leg off the ground. They took a bit of practice to feel like I was balanced properly, but once I got the control down I could feel my core (front and back) were engaging.
It’s been sooooo warm that I’ve been doing more running lately, which is unusual for January in Alaska. Yesterday was a be leak from the icy roads to make sure the rest of my muscles weren’t thinking they were on vacation or anything.
At the time this seemed like a fast fun workout. Today I’m realizing that those pistol squats are sneaky bastards. My legs are SORE!
More unseasonably warm temps here in Interior Alaska over the weeken, so I was out running! It’s great to be able to log some miles but it’s time for a rest day today. Tomorrow’s workout is going to be a circuit.
