Train for something new

For all of us who have tried to learn something new, we might have learned the hard way that slow and steady wins the race. A few of our crew recently trained themselves to meet a certain goal. The secret ingredients? Patience and practice over time.
 
“I started playing hockey a couple of years ago and had my first experience as a goalie last night," Scott Swineford, Senior Interactive Animator.
 
“I plotted out goals for what spin poi tricks I wanted to try to learn by Burning Man," Genevieve Locke, Project Director
 
While we have our interests across the board, here a few things we’d like to train for in 2018. Tricks included.  
 
Train for a 5K
We weren’t all born runners, but with a little training, we sure can be. Many of us have goals to train for a 5K in the coming year. Many beginners find Couch to 5K to be a great program (which comes complete with an app) to work their way to 3.1. Also, Runner’s World offer this inspiring 5K training guide.
 
Learn phrases in a foreign language
For those of us who have big travel plans for 2018, a few phrases like “How much?” “Where are the bathrooms?” and “Thank you very much” can go a long way in getting around and showing courtesy to locals when visiting a foreign country. Duolingo can help us learn a few helpful phrases in multiple languages with a little practice and accountability each day.
 
Practice public speaking
Some of us love speaking in front of a crowd (who are you?) while others would rather do anything else imaginable. With a little practice, we can make our public speaking a little more perfect. Check out these apps recommended by Inc. Magazine.
