Get Your Run On with Oxygen Mag

As the summer leaves us and cooler temperatures arrive - it may be challenging for some of us to continue running outside like we did during the summer because of the cold temperatures and the fact the days are shorter so it takes longer for the sun to rise and it sets even earlier.  Who wants to run in the dark with deer running rampant?  Not ...

Sanders Optimum Boot Camp (Day 11)

FFFC Challenge #15: (REPEAT CHALLENGE 14) 7-8 Hours of Sleep a Night

Sanders Optimum Boot Camp (Day 8)

Alright y'all.  I felt GOOD today.  I mean I felt ON this morning at 5:30 am.  Perhaps it was the 7 hours of sleep.  Maybe it was water I drank beforehand.  Most likely it was the dinner I ate the night before.  Whatever it was I was ready.   Now I am not saying I was pleased with the 1 mile jog warm up under 7.5 minutes!  Or saying I was ...

Sanders Optimum Boot Camp (Day 7)

It wasn't a good day y'all.  I mean the workout was good.  Monte did what he was supposed to do but the morning started off rocky.  For one, I did not get a good night's sleep after going to bed after 11 pm because someone next to me was sawing logs.  I mean it woke me up in the middle of the night to the point I had to sleep with the pillow ...
