This is Wednesday, January 17, 2024.

Today is a recovery day, which allows your body and brain to recover from the stress of hard training.

Our body needs stress to build fitness. It also needs recovery days so the body can recover from the hard days.

Deep thoughts from Larry: Last year, Nia Atkins, an elite 800m runner at Brooks Beasts TC, won both the USATF Indoor at 800m and the USATF Outdoor at 800m. Nia made it to the final in the 800m at the World Champs in Budapest, running a PB of 1:57.73 in sixth place! Nia Atkins told the media that 2023 helped build her confidence. Nia Atkins is focused on the Paris Olympics in 2024. We wish her the very best!
