This Tuesday workout really knocked us around a bit. The 4 repeats at a 5k pace are deceptive. A good pace, but not over the top. It is about the middle of the third repeat that you will start calling me names. That’s okay. Embrace the fatigue, welcome the challenge. Catch your breath, maybe jog ten minutes, then, do those stride-outs. Know that sometime, this coming season, you will look back at Terrible Tuesdays and smile, knowing that you can handle just about anything.
