Today the sun is shining for the second time in a week, which these days feels like a real event. I decided to ditch the Wednesday evening spinning class and go for a real live bike ride in the evening sun.
And what a difference it made- I loved going straight from my desk into the fresh air. (OK so I didn’t go as far or work as hard, but at least I wasn’t paying for the privilege of being shouted at in a room full of sweaty people). So I urge you, ditch the gym or the classes and get outdoors for some free exercise this week!
