Ep 91. Stress, safety, breathing techniques, embarrassing moments
Listen now
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 ever have expected! Did you see us there?  We also talk about stress, and how that can affect our training negatively, something I’d be interested to hear from you about if this is something that has also happened to you. And then we talk about *that* Samsung advert and how I got caught up in a bit of a media storm!  We talk about the danger of the advert in that it emphasises the belief that women feel safe and are empowered on every run, which isn’t representative, and at the same time undermines our campaigning to make women feel safer. We then have a few emails to discuss – one of them is a question about breathing, which we will address with the help of an expert in a forthcoming episode. And we have a couple of brilliant embarrassing stories – thank you so much! More please!
