30 Minutes of Hell

I went to my box yesterday and the workout was something out of a nightmare–and the worst of it? I didn’t read it properly!! So when I thought I was finished I was halfway. Let’s discuss the anger that went through my body when I realized that!! It was not pretty. So what was this … Continue reading

Strength is Back!

This means new PR’s! PR’s are so gratifying. Seriously. I could drink them up every. single. day. This week was the week where my thighs were under assault.

Now we need to also acknowledge that I have incredibly thick blood, … Continue reading
