Sickness, RKC, and Beast Tamer Challenge

Posted on February 25, 2010. Filed under: Beast Challenge, Performance | Tags: , , , , , , |

Sickness claims the many,  including myself, and may have told me to settle down even more than I was doing. Since I’ve had some downtime, which was quite depressing; it has lead me to come to interesting theories that I plan to test out. I will continue on with the Beast Challenge – starting slowly and using the Biofeedback approach populated by Frankie Faires again to reinvigorate my athletic/strength training.
