Bats are great for the environment, but the thought of them being in my face/hair, etc. wasn't appealing. I'm a wimp, what can I say.
The 4 at the start did burn me out a bit. I failed to remember that the 5 rounds of 3 reps each had 3 minute rest periods, these were to be one after the other; a little different, no? Always fun though.
Hills- 20 minutes
U-Circuit- 16 and 1/4 rounds (33 total uphill sprints)
(up, across, down, up, across, down=1 round
3/4 to full sprint up the hill, very light jog 25 yards across, controlled pace down hill.
It's just the shape of the path that I run.
Imagine a wide hill in the park.
1. Run up the hill (approx.) 25 yards
2. Run, skip, jump (approx. 25 yards) across top of the hill
3. Down the hill
4. Back up the same path I came down
5. Back across
6. Back down the original path I came up.
Therefore, the shape of a U or horseshoe.
I am beginning the Simple Fit run challenge with this.
I will do three workouts at three rounds this week.
Move to four rounds the following week and so on.
I enjoy the hill sprints, very challenging. Good for building my lactic threshold (if that's what you call it) for basketball competition.
