These Songs Helped Me Power Through My Races – They’ll Help You Smash Your Workouts Too!

November 29, 2017

About two months ago, I added a bunch of new songs to my iPod. And I started getting huge PRs at my races: I shaved seven minutes off my time in Palm Springs, and nearly four minutes off my times in Chicago. Coincidence? Maybe! (I’ve also been training like a madman.)

I hope to take a Powerwave Battle Ropes class tonight, but I’ll be on a waiting list to get in, and it’ll depend on how many people show up (so send your good group fitness class vibes my way, por favor!)
