Weekly Roundup time! 1. Thanks to April for passing this along. Radiolab took a journey to the edge of human limits. What are our bodies capable of achieving? What can we make them do and what will that inner voice tell us when we hit our limits. This is fascinating stuff and starts with the story of Julie Moss who decided to do an Ironman without really training for it. She tells her story at the beginning of the episode. You can watch some video of her race below with the Radiolab audio dubbed over in case you can't listen to the entire episode right away. Thanks April!
2. No Rest for the Foolish. Are you getting enough rest to make all this training worth it? Read this article from the CrossFit Journal on rest and recovery - two often overlooked, but essential components of training.
