This week in the podcast I dive into one of the things that people first said to me when I was having a severe depressive episode: “You should exercise more!”
It makes no sense for someone who is depressed, and it makes even less sense to someone who is depressed and already running 30km a week. Recently having had a period where I couldn’t run I had the opportunity to look at what my mental health would be like without running. I always thought it would suffer, and you know sometimes it did, but I also have lots of other things in my toolbox too. So this week I talk a bit about what that might look like.
After only join yesterday, i wanted to say a big thank you especially for the podcast on mental health. My running has taken a major back step since November and I joined for the community feel and motivation. I am everything you said in the podcast and it came at a perfect time, I needed to hear that.
So perfectly spoken too.

It is so lovely when you get to hear what you need to hear! We all need those step backs every now and then but I am looking forward to following along with your running journey!
