I’ll try and keep this one brief …well under my usual 500-600+ word essays...! 🙄
Sunday evening came after a day of internet shopping and family time and I needed a run fix. As I was facing fairly ferocious weather outside - howling winds and lashing down with rain ☔️ I thought I’d give the “End Of Day Run With Headspace” guided run a go on the Nike Run Club app, I’ve tried these before and found them very relaxing.
The two narrators discuss how to run mindfully and how to de-stress. This revolved around focussing on the body and the foot strike in particular as a way to drag your thoughts back to the present moment when you find yourself starting to think about concerns and stresses that are front of mind. This was interspersed with some very relaxing instrumental music.
Once the guided run had finished I felt well and truly wet through and very relaxed, I carried on with the music to complete the 5K.
Obviously being the 38 year old hyperactive child that I am I couldn’t just leave it there, so I smashed out a new 1KM PB for the final Kilometre 🤡⚡️⚡️
204 words including this, not bad - for me!
