My Journey Series…An Introduction

Running is a journey….a journey that takes us to many places both physically and metaphorically. In this episode we introduce you to a new series we are launching titled “A Journey to…….”

It is a series where Karen or Aileen will share a journey we are on. Through sharing our experiences and journeys we aim to help you travel your own road knowing that you are not alone.

My Journey Series…An Introduction


Outlining WHY we decided to start this ‘Journey’ series including:

Feedback from our listeners telling us they like it when we share personal experiences

We feel that when someone shares their personal story many people can relate to what they are experiencing. This can help validate the listener’s feelings and emotions around their encounter

Also, the person sharing their story can then empathise with the listener’s personal struggles, whatever they may be. For example: training struggles, nutrition struggles, injury struggles

When struggling with a situation, be it training, injury, or health conditions one can feel very alone with it. It helps when you hear about someone facing a similar dilemma

We aim to give guidance and information to you, our listeners, through sharing our experiences so your journey may be easier, quicker and more manageable

Finally, we are introducing a ‘My Journey…’ series to show everyone that we can all go through highs and lows as a runner for many different reasons….even us!! But ‘a problem shared is a problem halved’


Introducing the FIRST ‘My Journey….’ of the new series

The first ‘My Journey to….’ Will be Karen’s journey to recovery from injury. It is a chronic injury that she has not addressed in the past, which is now leading to additional compensatory injury ansd affecting her running performance

She has made some tentative steps towards getting treatment for the injury and discussing how she can keep training (without running) to maintain:

  • Endurance
  • Stamina
  • Muscle mass
  • Body composition

…and so much more!!


Highlighting what to expect from each ‘My Journey….’ episode:

An outline and update of Karen’s injury and recovery status

Her current rehabilitation treatment

The current nutrition/supplements/testing Karen is undertaking

Her current training status

Her current psychological and emotional status around her injury and rehab because as we know, an injured runner is not always a happy runner!!

An outline of what Karen hopes to share in the next episode regarding her recovery progression

The first Episode will be released on Thursday 3rd August…so look out for it!!
