New workout

image I haven't posted anything about running lately because I've been in a period of soul searching. And barbeque eating.

But my nutritionist wife, the Charming and Beautiful Susan, has me back on track. Here's what the physical activity has been over the past few months:

  • 5 miles Saturday
  • 3 miles Sunday
  • One mile run on Tuesdays and Thursdays to warm up for a circuit training regimen at the gym.
  • 1.3 mile walk with Allie five times a week.

Here's what the circuit training looks like:

This circuit workout was designed by a Navy Seal and is very doable and maintainable. In fact, when it's routine for you, it's easy to run through twice. Check into it further here.
