Sometimes progress isn’t about getting faster, sometimes it is about doing something better.

When I first did this workout, I obviously went out way too hard. I couldn’t maintain the pace of the first effort. Today, I repeated the session (with one less rep) but I actually got quicker in the final set! I also finally went to UQ and used the track, rather than chickening out and using the river path like I usually do. It was simple to pay and use the track, and I was virtually alone the entire time!
This workout is short, but tough. A perfect example of what is working for me right now. Great for building confidence, too.
