Last week I wrote about some 2022 Canadian research from the CDLRA that shows students overwhelmingly (89%) looking for greater flexibility & choice in how they access their courses.

Had a light 30 minute run on the treadmill today - my first since wiping out mountain biking with my son 2 weeks ago at Mount Washington and doing some damage to my right shoulder. I haven't done anything physical besides walking since then as my shoulder has been very sore, bruised and tender. The good news is that I was able to run for 30 min without aggravating my shoulder so fingers crossed I am passed the worst of it and can get back into my regular exercise routine soon.
