Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

- Hi Viviane! How are you today? - I'm sore all over! - What did you do? - Yesterday morning, I went to the gym for the first time in two weeks. I ran for an hour on the treadmill, then I did several series of abs, and finally I took a Pilates class. - I understand better why you're exhausted! - My legs hurt, I have cramps in my shoulders, and this morning, I was walking like Robocop! - You must be careful, you can injure yourself like that. Wait a few days before your next session!

I'll be right with you...
