Week 5 Newsletter

Half Way!

Reflect and Refocus

You have just hit the half way point.

As most of you have stepped up in the programme you may be finding it very challenging and sometimes when we are in this place we forget to remind ourselves that we are doing well. That's where having markers that help you stop and see your progress can help.

We are now in the second half of the programme and it is time for you to think about what you have achieved over the last 4 weeks. While there will have been tough moments within this time we are sure there will have been moments where you can see your growth. Let yourself feel good about this and start to feel good about the second half of your journey.

Time for some bodycare!

Inspiration for your body this week.  Here is a lovely gentle yoga sequence for runners that your body will thank you for - and even better, you can do it in the privacy of your own living room!

It's only 7 mins long no excuses not to get this important bodycare work in.

This week's quick tip: 

'There will be days that you have every excuse under the sun not to go to a session. These are the very sessions that you absolutely HAVE to go to as these are the ones that give you the best sense of achievement.' – Pam
