When I don't have my headphones...

What is it about the times I forget my earphones, or my batteries die, I can't really put my finger on why, but I often have a really satisfying workout. I wouldn't knowingly go to the gym, willingly without something to listen to, and a way to listen to it. But maybe I should try it more often.

Bottoms for squatting

Would you workout when you've had 4.5 hrs of sleep?

I was out for Halloween last night and slept around 4:30am, woke up at 9 to get ready for class.
