Recovery Road: “Strength” Workout 1

Why did I put “Strength” in quotes? Because this workout really should be called “Reintroducing the Body to Strength Training Movements,” but that’s a really long, horrible blog post title.

I’ll be uploading the info from my trusty Garmin Forerunner 405 CX, which will include my runs, bike rides, and the random cardio I do at home (you’ll see what I mean soon). I’ll also try […]
