A cold two and half weeks

….or should the title of this post read “I HAD a cold for two and a half weeks?”  That is actually what I meant.  When I plan my training calendar, this is never something I plan on and I forget how devastating it can be to a training plan.  The fact that you have no […]

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!
