Get your flow on!

Some days, and sometimes for weeks on end, you go out to do your thing, whatever it is, and your body feels off, awkward, tired, or unskilled. Other days, or moments, everything clicks, you body responds adeptly, movements feel easy and your mind can just bliss out. This summer I’ve been finding that flow state more frequently than ever. Movnat training has taught me to move more efficiently, which it is supposed to do, but I keep getting blown away by my times on trail runs I’ve been doing for years. I’m hitting PR’s when I feel like I’m just taking it easy.
On the flip side, lately when I’m out running in the woods I see a natural feature like a blown down tree and want to session it, like this guy does in this tree parkour video, but my first meager attempts have ended in a dirty cut up pile on the ground.
