I love strength training! As much as I enjoy running, and could run for days, there is something so great about strength training and pushing your body to the limit in that way. I find that it is much easier to quantify my progress with strength training than with running.
I did some great back squats, lots of kettlebell work (turkish get-ups, overhead swings, etc.), single leg dead-lifts, stability ball knee tucks, pikes and body saws, just to name a few of the moves. And I FINALLY conquered the tallest plyo-box we have at the gym!
All in all, a great workout, AND I am down a pound a half. I will take it!
