Spring is (almost) here

Friday's forecast is 71 degrees, sunny. If all goes well, I'll be taking my lunchtime-workout buddies up this route. Most of them are very new to trail running. The snow is gone, so I am interested to see how much easier this climb is on dry turf.

I told my friends that when we finish we might have some small scratches on our arms and legs, but we will definitely have BIG smiles on our faces.

I'll send an update after the run.

Today's lunchtime workout:

Bodyweight 400

Run to the park
Repeat the following circuit 4 times. Minimal rest.
  • 25 Squats
  • 25 Pushups
  • 25 Crunches
  • 25 Burpees
Run (walk) back downtown.

This is one of the toughest we do in the limited time we have. Today everyone completed the entire workout. That's 16-20 minutes of pure anaerobic activity.

Run hard out there.

Thanks for sending me your write-up on Barkley.

You continue to inspire me with your ability to integrate training into the workday.

Yeah, the warmer weather has ushered out the bike commute. Good times.

I'll be sending you some stuff in the snail soon...
