Without turning the post into a literature review, I hope that you are getting the idea that long steady state cardio training is not only mind numbingly boring, but also not your most effective way to develop aerobic or anaerobic power.

Anyone else shocked to glance at the calendar and see that we are less than a month away from Christmas day? Wow – where does the time go? I have some of my shopping finished, I have Paul’s present, a present for my brother, one for my sister-in-law, but I still have quite a few […]
