I haven't really set any specific goals for running, I used to be a decent runner over shorter distances when I was younger I remember doing 1.5 mile in 8 1/2 min when I was about 19, I'll just see how it goes.

I was going do sit-ups with my press-ups the other day but it was too painful, I bruised my back when I was shadow boxing I twisted my ankle and crashed into the sharp angle of the wall

One of those days? ithe other day i picked up a DB to change the weight and dropped 15kg on my foot, having forgotten i'd already took the clip off

Your circuits are coming on nicely, told you the results were fast

So running just for cardio then? I miss running to be honest but with trying to get bigger ive pretty much cut it out completely except for occaisional 3 milers, and pretty much just doing my circuits and walking everywhere (something my dog's not complaining about) and doing my 25 miler up on the hills once a week for cardio work and that's it... oh and a bit of rope climbing (mostly for core work/conditioning) and a bit of boxing here and there.

But yeah, well done with the circuits. it'll be interesting to see how long it takes before your doing 100 + chins per day and 2-300 press ups, sit ups etc as you seem pretty focused. i'd say 4-6 weeks.

Aren't you supposed to have rest days in between this type of training? To allow the muscles to recover?

Take them as and when you need them to begin with but once you get stronger you'll find you can do press ups/sit ups every day and either alternate chins/pull ups every day or do them every other day. But for me this is a result of doing press ups/chins/pull ups for years so i'm more than used to it. some days (not weights days) i can bang out 6 or 700 press ups/sit ups/burpees etc in around an hour (i never go above 150 chins or pull ups a day tho) and feel fine the next day, a bit sore but nothing major and i soon loosen up once ive stretched off. Yet a friend of mine and my brother tried one of my bodyweight workouts and were ****ed for nearly a week after. It takes time to get used to it but the results are worth it.

Why not just disregard your time - and allow yourself a slower finish time - by taking the first 3 miles at a very easy pace - and then picking it up in the final 3 miles - I think you would have alot better chance of seeing out the 6 miles without stopping.
Took this advice and completed the distance, I was breathing easy at the end but my legs were really feeling it.

Wed 15th Dec

6 mile run
5 X 3 shadow
Pyramid set press-ups - 128 reps
Pyramid set sit-ups - 108 reps

I think I'll aim at this stage to do a circuit 3 times a week, I'm definitely feeling the benefit already in my arms and I like the fact that I can get a lot done in a short period of time as sometimes I am really busy and struggle to find the time to train.

Yeah good idea mate, whatever works for you, and it certainly sounds like its working. And yeah that's precisely why ive always liked these kinds of circuits, short but intense.

Maxed out on a few exercises today to see where I am at:

Press ups - 45
Pull ups - 10
Chin ups - 9

My running pb's at the moment are:

3 mile - 23.18
4 mile - 33.54
5 mile - 42.20

I'll come back to these in 6-8 weeks and see if my fitness is improving, to motivate me I'll set a few goals:

Press ups - 60

Chin ups - 13
Sit ups - 60


2 mile - 15.00
3 mile - 21.30
