Over the past few weeks, I have debated about whether or not I should post my training to this blog. Ultimately I have decided to share my journey and become a bit more vulnerable. This way the athletes that I coach can see what I am doing along the way and others who may just want to compare notes can have a glance. My biggest goal as of now is to stay injury free until January. I wanna see how fast I can get in these next several months. I want to put it all out there. So if any one has any advice or questions please comment below or should me a message under the contact me page.
So here it comes the past 2 ” more serious” weeks of training.
