  1. Hi Aaron, thanks so much for these tutorials – they are fantastic! And don’t stop your “ramblings” – they are full of golden nuggets of info. I’m wondering if you could please put together a tutorial that would show how you’d handle a transition from a run to a walk, or a walk to a trot? Also, if you do any more of these, could you explain a little bit more of your thinking on spacing? Looking forward to more of these :)
