It’s a perfect day to go for a run! If you enjoy running you should definitely get the nike running app to keep track of your personal bests. I just downloaded it the other day and love it!

Today’s workout is to just go for a run, but genuinely challenge yourself, once you feel like stopping run for another minute! Push yourself, you can frickin’ do it!

I often get asked why I don’t work legs on Monday or Friday. That’s when most people work legs and if your into fitness I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “monday leg day.” Well, my answer is actually pretty simple, it’s because when I go into the gym on Mondays or Fridays almost everyone there is working legs so I can’t use the machines I need to have a successful leg workout. To avoid that frustration I simply train legs in the middle of the week on Wednesday when most people are working arms or chest. Hope that helps! Thanks for the support!
