The next few weeks are going to be fun. We’ve got people walking the Around the Bay Road Race in Hamilton next weekend (let’s hope there is good support for the early start walkers!), another strong contingent going to NYC for the MORE Half Marathon at the beginning of April along with Jill and Jay who fly to London for the Flora marathon and, of course, our group pounding the western edge of North America in Big Sur a few weeks after that.

With so many people maxed out on their endurance walks and in “taper” mode, it’s good to take time to bring back the power in those muscles. In class, I’ll be introducing some plyometric “power” moves such as leaping (!) and lunges with leaping! Power squats with jumps are another good idea. Strength training also helps.

With spring finally sprung everyone will know that you are just jumping of joy!
