Week 1- Holy Moly I am out of Shape Okay let me rephrase the title, I am out of cardiovascular endurance shape.  Give me a 7 min AMRAP (as many reps as possible) or a squat clean max session and I would not hesitate in the slightest about smashing that workout.  But when you go … Continue reading Half Marathon

SPRING CLEANING                   As I roll into my spring break week I felt like it was my duty to do some spring cleaning.  I am not a hoarder, but I am the person who says, "I will wear that, I know it."  4 years later it is still … Continue reading Monday Posts
