Sam builds the her perfect routine

Reflective vibes from Melina
"This may surprise many of you, but since Court House has closed, I have not picked up a squash racquet. Initially, I saw this break from work as an opportunity to be super productive in other aspects of my life; but, what I have learned during this period away from the courts - and away from the world we once knew - is that it is okay to slow down. I now have the time to do some of the things that I enjoy that don't necessarily fit my narrow definition of 'productive.'
Staying on-point during the COVID-19 outbreak

The same rule applies to fitness.
