Lift your mood through running

A short course for people with no or little running experience or for those who have not run for a long time.  This course will take place half in the classroom and half outdoors at a nearby parkIn a relaxed, friendly and supportive environment, we will share experiences and strategies within this area and others to help us better self-manage life’s challenges. We will gradually develop from walking to doing some sustained running outdoors and see how exercise and activity really can lift the mood and help us to relax. We will learn about running related matters such as how to warm up safely and how to stretch safely and how physical activity can enhance your health and wellbeing.
