It's Monday so of course I mowed the lawn! Granted last week I used it as my cross training event, this week I decided to just do it on my rest day. It was a bit cooler than yesterday, when I had initially planned to do it but was too tired. I had initially planned … Continue reading Rest Day With Hornworms and Planks
Sunday, a day of rest or in the case of my training plan-a day of cross training. I focused more on the rest portion of the concept.

My first mile was a bit challenging because my legs felt sluggish after last nights weight training. … Continue reading Morning Run
