It was one heck of a fun Friday at Iron Maiden! And, we covered 3.2 miles. That’s right. Tons of exercises plus 3.2 miles. We broke up the running with different circuits to keep it interesting – thanks to all the fellow FiAs who came out to enjoy their morning with me. Here’s what went down.

Warm up: 15 arm circles foward, 15 back, 10 burpees, run up parking lot to nearby parking deck and back, 10 burpees, 20 toy soldiers

Tha Thang:

  • Run down to fountain. 40 shoulder taps. 10 tricep dips. 8 Peter Parkers. 60 sec incline plank.
  • Run to clock tower. Repeat exercise circuit.
  • Run to lower level patio area. 20 Carolina dry docks. 10 elevated leg lunges per leg. 10 half burpees.
  • Run up stairs, around fountain and back down. Repeat exercise circuit.
  • Run to Vivace. 30 sec pulsing squats (30 sec on, 10 sec off. Repeat four times)
  • Run on Greenway to West Elm. Pusling donkey kicks (30 sec L, 30 sec R, 30 sec L, 30 sec R)
  • Run up parking deck inclines to top.
  • Partners: one partner does abs of their choice. Other partner runs to other side of deck and back. Repeat x3.
  • Plank circle to wrap it up!
  • Run down parking deck and back to parking lot.

COT: Think about what you can control and focus on that, rather than the stuff that you can’t control. At least for me, this helps when I try to keep a positive attitude when things get tough.

Hope those who came out loved it! I have to say – I was kicking my own booty but it felt so good after. Happy Friday everyone!
