Well friends, we finally have the winter snow storm we've all been waiting for! School and work are dismissing and you're mentally checking out, daydreaming about which show to binge watch while becoming 'one with the couch' for the rest of the day.
Let's earn those glasses of pinot and miscellaneous snacks about to be ingested.

Use the RPE Scale (rate of perceived exertion) below to measure the targeted workload for each round.

Cool down and proceed to RPE 1
