Neil Price: Rachel has also had a tough week with her teacher training but has shown great resolve in sticking to her plans. She enjoyed her yoga class greatly and will be returning next week. This is great exercise for body and mind as it improves her postural awareness and flexibility, which are both often brushed over when time is precious. Rachel bravely completed 40 lengths of the local pool but will not have the time to repeat this again. We have therefore decreased her swimming time but expect faster laps instead. Higher intensity training will help to keep Rachel's metabolic rate elevated even after she stops, burning more of those calories even while she rests.
