Tip of the Day
Today's WOD is all about lactic threshold training.  Do you have the ability to push yourself into the "suck zone" and stay there?  Most athletes slow down or stop whenever they start to feel uncomfortable.  The harder you can push into being uncomfortable, the more your body will adapt to the stress, therefore increasing your work capacity.  Rule #4:  Embrace the suck.
