Circuit Training = Running?


Could Circuit Training equal one's running for the day?

For the past 2 weeks I've been doing circuit training around lunchtime and jogging (8 min/mile) about 4 hours later on MWF. On TuThSat, I've been doing HIIT for 21 minutes.

Circuit training, depending on intensity level used in each set, will have more in common with HIIT than with jogging.
