NUTRITION READING: “Getting Real About the High Price of Cheap Food”
– Normally I don’t read TIME magazine, but I was checking out at CVS yesterday and this cover story caught my attention. It is actually a pretty good read and has a lot of good info about why we should eat “organic”, “natural”, “humanely treated”, “antibiotic free” foods.

Today is a day to relax and get ready for Labor Day. Go for a walk with your family or dog. Spend some time at the pool. Hang out in the sun to get some much needed Vitamin D. Point: Do something to actively recover and don’t push yourself. Recovery, among other things, is key to make the necessry and wanted gains in ANY training program. So, have a fun and safe weekend and RELAX!
