2014-08-21: “pre-season” week 2 day 4

what is working great though is re-establishing the habit of taking a walk break around 9am. that and a few other things should help drive the leg-time upwards when training kicks off and starts to build up. it’s also good mentally, taking a break from the desk, getting some fresh air etc.
