Back to Running?!!

Well, the ole’ dress shirts have been getting a bit tight lately so it’s time to kick it up a notch.  I have missed doing some longer cardio, and while there are many schools of thought on LSD (long slow distance), the fact is I have missed losing myself on long monotonous runs.  On the flip side, this is the strongest I have ever been.  Is it possible to have the best of both worlds?  Let’s find out!

Here’s to leaning out without losing strength, cheers!

Below is something I had a blast doing while in school, incorporating the treadmill in a circuit for active recovery and improving endurance.  It’s just wrong how much I have missed it.  You can just as easily substitute a jump rope or, you know, run outside instead of a treadmill (need my fix of ESPN, dont judge!).



1) Run 2 min (5.5MPH/ 1 * Incline)

32kg KB Clean & Jerk 3x/arm

Run 2 min (5.5MPS/ 1 * Incline)

Six Count Burpees 5x

Repeat circuit 10x

Yep, that should sufficiently kick my ass before heading to the office!

One thought on “Back to Running?!!

  1. That sounds like a fun one! I’ve been wanting to incorporate more running into my routine, and after a long bout of ZERO RUNNING a circuit looks like it could do the trick.
