one circuit after another

Hello:

A girl made a slow circuit of the room, then she made another circuit of the room, then she made another circuit of the room..... She walked round and round the room slowly.



Can I say "she walked one circuit after another of the room" here? Does it sound bad here?

Thank you.

    You would do better to keep "circuit" and "of the room" together because they are a logical unit - do not separate them. So:

    "she walked one circuit of the room after another."
