Under the weather

Hopefully back in a few classes but I have a special/exciting/scary day on Thursday… I really neglected my exercise last week, but I guess I deserve some time to enjoy myself after my efforts? On Monday I finally went to a spinning class. It was incredibly hard work and I think I figured out I […]
