The Weekender

There is so much happening […]

The Weekender: Favorite Links + Last Week’s Workouts

June 15, 2015

Happy Monday! Last week I once again spent the majority of my workout time at CrossFit Metro with just a little running mixed in. It’s been quite the adjustment to see my weekly mileage so low on a regular basis. I know I’m working out hard at CrossFit, but it’s just a mind shift to not be running […]
