Woot woot, alle geplande trainingen afgelopen week gehaald dus....

beloon ik mezelf met een t-shirt :-) Ik wacht nog even met bestellen want als het de komende 3 weken lukt alles te volbrengen wat de bedoeling is dan worden het er 3!Gisteren eerst lekker anderhalf uur gefiets met aansluitend een zwemtraining. Tijdens het fietsen een nieuwe muziekmix gebruikt om te zien of deze inzetbaar is tijdens de spinninglessen deze week.
