            Great work.

                      NOTE: In favor of being *less* exposed to Covid-19 so that I can (hopefully) go to Portland in 10 days to help with my granddaughter, I am opting OUT of going to the gym during the time between now and then. I KNOW there are people that go to the gym sick, and I don’t need the excess exposure.😒

                        As someone who works out only at home, I can testify that there's plenty to do (not that you actually need me to tell you that) So hang in there

                          Amirsh, I am usually only at the gym in the morning cuz I like/need the social benefit of the classes there. I actually prefer home workouts. But because I tend toward the antisocial side, I *make* myself attend the classes for my emotional health😜 I don’t do anything independently at the gym, though....
