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:
- 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!!
