I received a challenge to ask someone to join me on my next workout. I think it will more likely be the other way around - I will ask to join someone in THEIR workout, since that is my biggest weak point!... Read more
Is it OK to post goals when you aren't sure you will reach them? I think it must be. If you don't have a target, how do yo know when you hit it or miss it?
