National Running Day Circuit

I’ve recently become a big fan of running circuits. I’ve found that they get me to run longer distances, but also break it up so that my runs don’t come as monotonous.  I’ve also heard from many of you that have said you’re looking for a way to incorporate strength-training into your run training schedule.  If you have the flexibility available, then I’d recommend using these types of circuits to bring a little extra “pop” into your regularly scheduled runs.

National Running Day Circuit

Today was National Running Day!  While I’m not a huge runner, I’ll take pretty much any reason to celebrate!  Making this workout was a blast – looking for ways to strengthen total body, while not completely fatiguing the legs.  For my personal workout schedule, today was primarily a strength-training day, so I’m looking forward to pulling this one out of the box tomorrow when I have my longer cardio session.


How are you celebrating National Running Day?  How do you mix strength-training in with your cardio sessions?

Create a great life!

    I celebrated with a nice, 60 minute run, almost Garmin-less, where I tried to stay present and focus on enjoying the morning. I didn’t start strength training until mmmm 3 weeks ago, but now I’m on a kick of circuits, with 3 minutes of 90-95% sprinting in between the sets. Definitely feel like jello afterwards. Hope you have a great day! : )

    I’m am somehow just hearing that it was national running day, so as punishment I’ll be running hills in the morning! (Seems fair right?) haha! I love intervals when I run too, good way to break things up!
