Tuesday, February 01, 2011      8 comments

The first few times I did Leslie Sansome "Walk 30 min" I didn't like it. It's still not my favorite mainly because I don't understand how to do it. I'm not coordinated and I have no rhythm. When she says, "Did you hear the increase in tempo?"... Read more
