Monthly Miles Round Up – March 2019

I thought it was important to share the training that I've been doing in order to progress. Not only to try and give myself a little more accountability to running, but also to share with you the truth that may or may not come across on other outlets. I've recently found that my instagram is full of running photos, and not a lot else. I've been trying to force myself not to share run picture after run picture, but am finding that a little difficult.

Because of this it may seem like I've been running way more than I actually have!

One Move at a Time: Beats (or more formally entrechat)

Jumping has long been one of my favourite parts of dance class. Not because I'm good at it, I have a habit of not using my plié as much as I should that I'm trying not to pass on to my student. But just because I enjoy it. Jumping forms the basis of many moves,… Continue reading One Move at a Time: Beats (or more formally entrechat)
