We hosted our monthly #runandtalk session last night, which was hosted by Trish and Claire from our Mental Health Support team! These ‘Run Around the Block’ sessions are aimed at those who might have experience of mental health issues, either personally, or as a family member or friend. These non-judgemental sessions are a great way to try out running with a smaller group, and we only cover a mile which can be walked or jogged. The sessions are followed by cake and drinks at a local cafe/bar!
At this session, Trish guided us through breathing techniques and taught us ways we can use our breathing to control our emotional state. Then we heard from Claire, a trained therapist, on some very useful self-care tips.
Our monthly Wednesday runs are advertised on the RunTogether website so check out the future dates and come down and see us!
