Fresh kicks

I have sore quads today from the HIIT but it’s nearly 60ºF so I went out for a run anyway. How can I pass up a day like this at the beginning of February? I covered just about 2.5 miles … Continue reading

Intervals and new shoes

6x400m intervals today. It’s funny; I enjoy the fast, hard workouts a lot more than the 3 mile "junk miles" placeholders. Today’s run was not spectacular and the fast parts weren’t even all that fast, but the intervals broke up … Continue reading
