How does the Mindful Runners Recreational Program Work? The program works quite simply. For one fee you have the opportunity to go through the 12-week program as many times as you would like, hopefully at a higher level in subsequent time frames. The program starts with a two-week starter program that is the same for everyone. It gets the muscle tone started and there is no technical methodology. Once a level of training is recognized, through evaluation, the program begins through doing and learning. The audios and videos set the pace of physical and mental training. One learns, for instance, how to do a gait and a tempo. One week there may be an emphasis on a particular breathing technique called Tidal Breathing, then new ways to recover from a workout like the Full Body Recovery, which is a form of progressive relaxation. A practical way to create an interval workout is called the 24-Step Method. In the video you will be shown various paces within the steps: light, moderate, and brisk. Each week you will be adding just the right amount of new information, techniques, and capability so you can utilize the Mindful Runners Techniques to perfection. Each 12 weeks, a cycle of training is completed and you are able to give a full effort with mind/body support. The advantage is the Event Rehearsal that is set up as a guided imagery. That means that you picture in your mind your ideal race and mentally rehearse it. It is an area of mental training that Coach Spino has used for many years and you will notice how easily an optimum effort and experience will be available to you.
