The focus for the run today was on staying relaxed.

My neck, my shoulders, my arms, everything all as loose as possible.

The course today seemed easier when I moved my focus away from what I was doing and instead concentrated on being relaxed.  That's the big message I got from this session and Rick made sure that if you were doing this course you were relaxed and in a good zone.

It really works.  I don't want to sound preachy, but he seems to be kicking lots of goals with a lot of the things he is saying.

Try it for yourself.  Run and then pay attention to how tense parts of your body are.  Make an effort to relax them and notice how less fatigued you become. 

It sounds simple and it is, but until it was pointed out to me I didn't give it a thought.

My cough is almost gone so that's awesome too.

When I finished today it was the best I'd ever felt.  Ever.
