Cook, Eat, Run Podcast Season 2
Runners Need and Brooks have joined author and dietician (and runner!) Charlie Watson for season 2 of her Cook Eat Run podcast.
This season will see content around choosing the right running bra, why running with run clubs is great, working towards big goals, trail running, strength training for runners, cross training and much more.
The Benefits of Running With Others: We're missing running clubs, group runs, parkrun and races... but there's more to the running community than just the accountability we get from running with others. In this episode I chat with Mark West (@run4mh) and Mark Speed from Runners Need about group running and why it's such an important part of their running journey. We chat about:
• virtual races
• mental health
• the benefits of running with others
• how to find people to run with
• Run Talk Run
• Runners Need Group Runs
• Brooks Run Happy Team
If you've been struggling at all with your mental health recently, this episode if a must listen. Mark West is a mental health first aider with the NHS and we discuss Run Talk Run, Talking Therapies and the impact of covid on our running.
Each week dedicated runners take to the streets of the UK with the Runners Need Run Clubs to improve their running in a friendly and supportive environment. So whether you're training for a marathon or just getting started, these are the benefits of joining a Run Club.
When was the last time you went for a ‘naked run’? It’s something someone asked me just before Christmas, and I was as surprised as you are. Of course, they didn’t mean a 5km jog in the buff, they meant when was the last time you ran without an app or tracking device. Basically, without any accountability to an app, other runners, or yourself.
