Hi Everyone. Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. There’s still time to enter the raffle to win $25 to REI. What do you have to lose?

Now for this week’s workout diary!

Every time I worked out last week

Monday: I took a walk in Jamaica State Park in Vermont with the ski crew. The trail was a sheet of ice. The first thing I thought when got out of the car was: “Oh, here is where I sprain my ankle.” But luckily no such accident occurred.
