In October 2015 I set up a WhatsApp group, there were about 6/7 of us. We ran most Saturday mornings, it was a chance to catch up with friends and grab a coffee after. This turned into a group to meet and train for 10km, then half marathon and ultimately for some (not me) a marathon. Our group has changed over the years, with so many interesting people joining, spouses and even kids joining in. Some of this group will join me for the Runners Workshop Friday 26th at 7pm.
The process of training rather than running for fun is a shift in mind set and also body wise. Rising earlier, eating differently, being more mindful of wearing specific clothes as dictated by the season. But you get up and you do it as the group is waiting and will carry you along, even when you feel you can’t. When you being this journey it’s so exciting, if you’re new to running this workshop is going to be wonderful for you. Kind of like getting driving lessons before you actually drive a car 😉
So calling to mind everything involved in running, I am so excited to have Maria McCambridge along for a Runners Workshop Friday 26th at 7pm. Maria is an Olympian, but also a mother, we will chat about what it is like to train now and before kids. An interesting topic Maria and myself spoke about recently is knowing your limits. As our bodies change with life this is a particular challenge for those wanting to do that elusive marathon or indeed go further.
I will chat to Maria about what motivates her to run and compete, and perhaps it might aid you to reflect on the same. We will look at the importance of breath work, stretching, balance and the core. You will receive yoga exercises to target specific muscles used in running.
To be honest like everything in life, when you run its not about the race it’s about the journey.
