After taking yesterday completely off for a little mental health, I was rip roaring to get on the road today after I got done work and my CSCS review session. I had one of those runs that just felt awesome through out. I was trying to run easy but I knew I was booking it the whole time. Every song that came on my iPod put a smile on my face. It was just a simply blissful run. I especially took some time to enjoy the Battery since it was featured as Runner’s Worlds “Rave Run” for March. I was so shocked when I turned the page and saw the run I do 5/6 days a week. After my awesome run, I ended at the gym to do a new circuit.
This may have been my hardest circuit yet. I don’t know if it is because I did a pretty hard run before or that I didn’t take any rest breaks but it kicked my butt. Two things that may be not well described above:
Lunge with running arms: stand in deep lunge and pump arms like running; make sure to switch so that each leg is in front for 30 seconds.
Bosu Ball Transfers: Lay on back with Bosu between feet, v-up and grab ball with arms, extend arms above head and legs straight without touching the group, v-up again and transfer ball back to feet. That is 1 rep!
It felt so good to get a good work out in after being pretty lazy yesterday.
We had a few friends over for dinner too which was great to just hang out and really act like is is spring break! Woo Hoo!!
