Today was unbelievable. When I left my office for the day to head home I was stunned by the beauty of the sky and by how perfect the weather was.  It was a nice 54 degrees when I left for my home. The entire 45 minute drive flew by thankfully. One thing that stood out during the drive was this constant desire to just jump outside and start running.  The feeling came over me much as if it were a tidal wave grabbing everything in its path.

As soon as I made it home I did not delay getting changed and ready to run. So here’s how it went down. I took off and started a slow jog while waiting for runkeeper to kick in.  The sounds of Foster the People – Helena Beat got me running at a perfect starting pace. I ran around 2.15 miles before I dropped down and did 30 push-ups. From here I did a series of sprints each approx 0.2 miles in length. After each sprint I did a different exercise in between which began with the push-ups. So it went like this:

  • 2.15 Miles
  • 30 Push-ups
  • 0.2 Mile Sprint
  • 50 Walking Lunges
  • 0.2 Mile Sprint
  • 2 Minute Plank Hold
  • 0.1 Mile Sprint

To conclude I grabbed one of my smaller logs and did half a mile light job alternating between holding the log straight armed directly above my head from one arm to the other.  Towards the last segment I did a series of french curls, chest presses, and military presses, still jogging. Dropped the log off and went off on another almost half mile fast paced run. All in all it was a great workout.
