April 2017 - Spring Cleaning

For many the coming of spring symbolizes clearing out and freshening up. It's also a great time to evaluate those "resolutions" we set for our selves and see if they are still working for us. Take 20-mins this month to think about your goals you hold yourself to. Do they make you feel happy and more productive? If not maybe it's time to toss a few out. 

April's sequence will help your mental spring cleaning by fostering internal reflection and letting go.

Runner's use this sequence to evaluate the state of your body, be honest with yourself. If your body is asking for some downtime really consider honoring it with an extra day or two off, we all need recovery. This is also a good time to take a look your training schedule and make any needed adjustments.
