Ep 74. Workshop. Diets, body neutrality and running recovery
In this episode Holly and I are chatting about running recovery and our experiences with diets. You find us in the middle of chatting about my new haircut, so sorry about that, but I included a bit because it segues brilliantly to a comment we’ve had on the podcast, as you’ll discover. We also talk about running through illness when you should actually be recovering. We talk about how we need to be mindful of the recovery period as much as the running period, both when we’re in training and when we’re unwell. Something I have not abided by over Christmas unfortunately. We talk about our relationships with food and diet, a conversation we started in the previous workshop as it’s something we wanted to continue, and how we are trying to amend the way we think about what we eat and how we perceive ourselves. Essentially we want to appreciate our bodies for what they’ve done rather than how they look. We’d be interested to hear what you think about this, and your relationships with food and your body and if running has had a positive impact on that. In the meantime, happy running and I hope you enjoy the episode!

In this episode Holly and I are talking about the National Running Show, which took place last weekend. This was a big event for the podcast, as we were doing a talk on stage, and we were a little bit nervous about it – thankfully it’s all over and done with now, and it went better than we could...
In this bumper episode, Esther and Holly launch into it with the week’s headline event: Holly’s fight with one of Bath’s resident Herring Gulls. One stressful day later, and bolstered with a tetanus jab, she is FINE, and has used the experience to boost our stats on the podcast. Good girl. Then,...
