JULY 6, 2016 WAWA: Runnin’ Repeats

Admittedly, I do not particularly like running.  But I do like running with a group.  It’s been a long while since we’ve done a pure, running-focused workout….so that is this week’s WAWA.

But here’s some good news:  Temps will be in the lower 70’s this Wednesday so it will be GREAT for our workout.  And this run workout is broken up into little chunks of small distances.  Rest in-between the chunks!

You’ll love it!

Meet outside in front of The Cornwell Center, ready to go at 6 am!
