Athlean Workout WK 1

The Luge Trail Run

This Modjeska Canyon trail run was aggressive and challenging! I remember mountain biking The Luge trail years ago in Modjeska Canyon. I didn’t remember if it was a manageable trail for running though.  What I discovered was brutal!

Recovery Makes You Stronger

My toes jetted forward, curled and twisted as vicious cramps bit both my calves.  Recovery would only come through tapping out. I was still recovering from my last obstacle course race (OCR) on Sunday but training for the Spartan Super began that next day on Monday. There is no downtime before entering the battlefield. Really? I knew that…
