Polar Heart Rate Training

Heart Rate Training

I have made a fundamental shift in my training plan in the last while. Last season, I went a lot by how I felt, but one thing I have found is that I cannot necessarily trust myself when it comes to that. Exhibit A? What I thought was just annoying case of shin splints that ended… Read More…

Some Peanut Butter Chocolate Goodness

Compression Socks and Athletes
