  1. Oh I loved this episode even though I am not a runner! It was a great reminder to stop and really think about what we want to do compared with what we should do and pushing hard all the time.

    1. Glad you enjoyed listening Bernie. Liz puts on a great show!

      We often forget, or get too busy, to take the time to listen to ourselves and the feedback it’s trying to give us.

      Routines are great…when they are working for us. We just need to check in from time to time, to see if our routines are still healthy and current. Exercise is just one of these things.

      Exert less to achieve more..

      Thanks for your feedback Bernie.
