    long and silly progression – monday morning fog perhaps?
    the 105 was still a bit of a press at the top – but better than the one i pulled off last week

    WOD: TBA later

    i fogged up my windshield on the way home!

    “Does it make you nervous to not know?”

    Yes it makes me nervous to not know, but I suppose it doesn’t matter. I get nervous before a workout even if I do know.

    I exactly like Dan on that question… I get nervous about every workout regardless so whether I know or not doesn’t change a whole heck of a lot. I will say this however, “Mile in the Middle” does inspire a bit more of the jitters.
