Made-up circuit training workout. :)

This morning I only had about an hour to workout.  It's a weight day for me, but I also wanted to get in some cardio, so I made up a circuit workout.  It went something like this:

I started out with 5 minutes of fast walking on the treadmill.  Then I used 10 pound hand weights to do reps of 10 of bicep curls, 10 overhead lifts, then 20 sit-ups.  Then I did 5 minutes as hard as I could on the bike, followed by the same weight reps again, and 20 more sit-ups.  Next, 5 minutes hard on the elliptical, and back to the same weight reps and 20 more sit-ups.  Then I did 5 minutes of running on the treadmill, and then this time, I used the stability ball to do chest presses, 10 reps, followed by triceps and then again 20 sit-ups.  Basically, I repeated this sequence until I had done it for 65 minutes.

Not a bad workout, actually.  All the changes and variety in my workouts lately, well since getting our gym membership almost a month ago, have really helped me become more well-rounded in the physical fitness department, but I am desperately missing my long, long runs. :(

    I got a membership for my birthday! At the gym with all the nice equipment, I'm so excited I'm actually going to wake up early to workout tomorrow.
