Virtually There

My year end goal of improving my fitness is three weeks away. I am focusing on eating clean – most of the time – and keep to my workout routine. ¬†Swimming is one of my favorite sports and I get to the pool to swim four mornings a week. I am also cycling on myContinue reading “Virtually There”

Today was framed with endurance workouts. First this morning I had spin class and we did an endurance workout that pushed to our anaerobic threshold. Each set would increase effort and each set lasted longer. By the end I felt I had a good ride. Since I have been attending spin class I have beenContinue reading “I’ve Got the Power”
