I have to say this workout was awesome. It is the most amount of muscle ups (at least progressions of them) that I have ever done in a workout. I have to say I can’t even imagine completing this workout last year. I would love to have a consistent muscle up by the end of August. The running I did in barefoot shoes. It was a good distance to practice my barefoot running and I definitely don’t want to overdo it where that is concerned because running injuries are painful and suck the big one! Overall I’m super happy right now – I’m eating cleaner, finding time for my workouts, focused on a few goals and going after them… moving… living. It’s pretty awesome. And the gorgeous summer-like temperatures in March have been AMAZING!
