Doing well this week. Runs are strong and I feel as if I am constantly improving not only my speed but endurance as well. I am looking forward to the last week of Making the Cut! It has been a great program,however I am excited about the start of P90X again starting in July. The combination of P90X and Cathe proved to be winning combination for me and I hope it does the same this time around!
