Sinus Issues

Jan 25, 2011

Well I thought my sore throat last Monday was due to my dry apartment and my fatigue due to my hard training week, but I eventually resigned to the fact that I caught a cold.  Gave myself a couple of rest days and dialed back the intensity on my workouts…

Running Technique

Nov 30, 2010

For the longest time I was always concerned about wrecking my joints since I like to train in shoes that I was convinced did not have enough support or cushioning.    Ever time I tried a high end cushioned shoe and lots of support I never felt smooth runni…
