Thoughts on working out

I have reached a point in my fitness journey where I am really seeing improvement. I work a tank top today that I haven't worn in at least a year, probably longer. In my workout tonight I was able to hold a handstand for 30 seconds 4 times. Not that long ago I couldn't even do a handstand. I'm seeing improvement every day and that makes me want to push harder and the harder I push the more improvements I see...It's a vicious cycle that I love. Absolutely love.

Today's WOD:

5 rounds for max reps:
30 sec knees 2 elbows
60 sec front squat (50#)
30 sec handstand hold
30 sec rest

I ended up doing 119 reps total in 5 rounds. I held the handstand for 4 of the 5 rounds. I also overhead squatted 75# - my max to date.....

Warm-up was an 800 meter run. I did it in 4:13. Last week I did 400 meters in 4:09, so that's less then double the time. Pretty good. According to this I should be able to run an 8:50 mile. Of course I would have to keep that up for another 809 meters....Don't know if that could happen. I think I'm going to push my running up though....
