Longer days under the sun and I am heading outside. How can you not after being cooped up inside all winter? Spring is my favorite time to hit the track. It feels fresh and adds a little flare to my training that has continued throughout the snowy cold months.
Today we are hitting the track for a circuit. No weights needed. Just need some water and a kick a** attitude!
Remember; a track is 400 m around.
Shrimp, Cabbage, Potato on Quinoa is a yummy, any day meal!
