Greatist Workout of the Day: Thursday October 25th

0

This week marks the end of the first GWOD cycle. Next week we’ll begin with a new cycle of programming.If you’ve been following GWODs for at least a few weeks, this week is an opportunity to rest, recover, and try some new, fun activities before the next cycle begins. Try a yoga class, go on a bike ride, and get outdoors! Normal programming begins again next week.
