This Friday the 13th is your lucky day! The Sox are away, so we can program more running, but not just any running, Nancy. Nancy’s a medium to long workout, ideally hitting the 12 to 15 minute time domain, but challenging yourself, still keeping it under 20, is OK too. The simple couplet of running and overhead squats presents an interesting challenge, as you will want to push the runs, but then need to slow down, control your breathing, snatch up the bar, and perform a movement that requires a much higher degree of balance and accuracy. I recommend selecting a weight with which you’re confident you can perform the first 4 rounds of squats unbroken. The most time is lost in this one when the reps are broken up. Strike the literal and figurative balance, and see how Nancy treats you tomorrow.
