By now you have been working on your goal and there are a lot of new lessons learned when striving to reach it. This week Melissa and Hunter challenge you to:
1. Praise effort and adherence, not performance
2. Focus on the process by learning from the challenges and knowing that challenge equals change.

Challenges: SEL: Olympic Cyclist, Giddeon Massie understood the importance of feedback early on in his career since cycling is an individual sport. Feedback is important for one to develop their skills and improve. It provides direction, goals and helps one to adjust their performance and skill execution as they progress. Giddeon challenges you to identify what skills you need in order to achieve your goal. Share what you are actively doing to reach your goal with a teacher, parent or coach and ask them for feedback!
Fitness Challenge: Working up a sweat is so important, which is why we are entering another week of endurance with Olympic Cyclist, Giddeon Massie. Giddeon is used to long stretches of being in a constant state of endurance. After completing this workout you should feel as is if you just gave it your all to capture the GOLD for Team USA! Giddeon challenges you to complete this workout twice this week.

Social and Emotional Challenge: Paralympian, Cody Jones challenges you to have hope. Write down a goal of yours and every day you wake up I want you to say “what if I (insert your dream).” Then I want you to think about how you can make that a hope into a reality.
Fitness Challenge: Balance plays an important role in your life, from walking down the stairs to throwing the javelin balance will keep you from falling down and it will help you get back up! I challenge you to incorporate this balance routine twice this week. Having a foundation in balance will also support you during the next 8 weeks of the RSG! Spring Series as we all get stronger together
