Thang

We pulled out the extra gear with dry erase boards and stopwatches.

Thang 1: The Timed Mile Run

    • 4 x 200M runs with 3 Burpee Active Recovery each run
  • Harvey & Fillmore Meet Point
    • 4 x 400m runs with 5 Burpee Active Recovery each run
  • Cuyler & Harvard to Harvard & Fillmore – then back to start
    • 1 x 800m run with 5 Burpee Active Recovery

News

Discussed several lunch meetups available on Friday. Hoping many PAX can make each one.

CoT

We talked about pushing ourselves to meet hard goals, which is why we did the timed mile. We also did intervals to help in recovery. This training is what helps us get out faster, recover more quickly and to get our heartrate down with breathing exercises. Just like other parts of our lives, when we do the hard work, it makes us better, faster, more efficient. Essentially the grind indeed does improve us. Take a look where else you could be going through the grind to improve your skills.
