My New Workout. (Linked to Amazon)
The test results reported on the last post could lead to a label of adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue is an unrecognized medical diagnosis.

There were only a few boats out that day, and it is a big lake, so it was not a problem. There was no launch fee, so, I will go back.
Have you explored anywhere new lately?
