Full Week of Training: December 12 – 17, I’m officially back at it

With wisdom teeth extraction, to traveling, to getting extremely sick, it’s been a tough start on the training road to Boston. And while I mentioned I was mentally struggling last week, that quickly faded away as my body began to realize I was throwing it right back into routine and the soreness settled in. And although I did my best…
