Performance nutrition lesson for the week, avoid hot pockets.
Endurance Training: Its necessary, do it. How much you need depends on your goals and your fitness level. Tracking your training with your journal is the best way to determine this. If you are training for the Warrior Dash and you are not a runner, you need to be able to work up to running 4 miles by October.
