Well I kind of fell off the blogging wagon a bit here lately(again). In my defense, IMLP vs IMCdA post took a bit of time to put together and I also needed to put together my next monthly post  for the iThlete HRV blog too. I have been training fairly steadily the past 3-4 weeks for Steelman …

iThlete Training Guide-HRV when sick

Week #8 did not get off to a good start. I didn’t feel too bad Monday morning, but I did have a bit of a stomach most of the day. I was planning to do a bike trainer ride when I got home from work, but on the ride home things took a turn for …
