Tuesday/Wednesday workout; Playlist; Turkey and Bike Story

Last one first. You gotta read this story HERE – oh lord. And I thought I had turkey problems! Yesterday was a Swim ladder, and a Brick spin/run. I had a bunch of “clean up email” stuff to do, and “suddenly” it was 3:00 – time to get the whole thing in! So I strapped on […]

The First Full IronTeam Workout in 2010
