Today I encountered a phenomena that I like to call runaway sets. It first occurred in my second set of exercises at 9:30 am while doing the Robot Trio. Instead of doing 15 reps I caught myself at 21. While I was still counting my attention was not on the exercise. The movement had become […]Read More Week 13 Day 4: Runaway Sets!
Today I decided to do something different. Well not truly different, just different for a Wednesday. Since I didn’t get my sets done yesterday I decided to do them today.

Brad Paisley and Coleridge aside, I want to talk about hydration. Something not to be taken for granted and usually isn’t when we are on a pretty good exercise regime. Going out for a run or bike ride, heading to the gym its easy to remember to bring water. However, if you are like me […]Read More Week 12 Day 3: Water, water everywhere…
