There was no reason to dread my hill sprints this morning. The bigger issue was how tired I feel right now. Well, this workout whipped me and I didn’t even get through the whole thing. The funny part is that it wasn’t the hills that got me. My run didn’t fall apart as much as […]
A double run day with a cross training session between them. It’s days like this that make me wonder if the people who say I’m nuts have a point. The workouts aren’t the toughest part; it’s fitting them in around all the other responsibilities of the day.
