As the weather is getting a bit better (FINALLY) I’m getting back into my walks outside- which were a bit intermittent over the winter. I had some fun with these workouts- and am feeling so much better taking a ‘break’ on Wednesdays. Its helped me recharge and re-energize for the rest of the week.
Hope you enjoy the ideas and use some of them in your own workout routine!
