Circuit is what I use to keep me fit for my mtn races, road races, adventure races, mtn hikes & overall fitness for life. It improves your muscle endurance, strength, balance, agility & MORE which will in turn get you ready for YOUR sport!!!!
I raced in my home town of Seward Alaska’s Mt Marathon race on the 4th of July. It is a VERY intense 3.5 mile race up AND down a very steep mountain. Having a baby 9 months ago I wasn’t sure how I would finish but thanks to circuit training, road running & intervals on the shell ridge I did pretty darn good!!! Here is a picture right after I crossed the finish line. (proud moment to have missy in my arms!)
At the startMy Dad finishing the last 1000 meters & my mom high fiving him (yes it runs in the family!)My mom, Charly & I with the mtn in the background (YES up & down that sucker!)
Charly and I had such an amazing 2 weeks in Alaska. We are blessed!!!
