I’ve literally got my shit together at the minute and I feel damn good about it. Macros are on point, gym training is going good and running has gone spectacularly well since my knee issues. Right now, the decision to reduce my maximum mileage per run has been one of the best things I’ve done…… Continue reading New PB and New Gym Routine.
