Spring is quite literally around the corner. And, again, we are left thinking that winter never really came this year which begs the question of whether or not this summer will be another scorcher?

You will also notice that everyday it’s a little warmer and it’s a little lighter in the morning sky, as if the very world itself is coming out to watch you and encourage you to train. We can’t think of a better motivator than the Earth itself!

The training in turn becomes slightly easier as although you may be running the same distance as last week if not more, the increased exposure to the coming brighter days help you combat fatigue and generally just make you feel better as opposed to the dark gloomy mornings of Winter.
