Operation Move is dedicated to making sure you find joy in your running, purpose in your training and some inspiration along the way.

    Just keep moving forward - when running and long covid collide

    Just keep moving forward - when running and long covid collide

    In this episode with Jen, we are talking about the aftermath of a 3 year pandemic, burn out and some of the realities of covid symptoms that persist past the acute period. It all has an impact, but in this we are focusing on how it has impacted running plans, running training and managing that change both physically and mentally.

    That which we do not speak of or the big scary running injury with no timeline

    That which we do not speak of or the big scary running injury with no timeline

     
    In this episode with Jo, I'm talking about that big thing which deep down we probably all fear as runners: a big scary injury with no running, no clear path forward and no timeline of how long it will last for. We look at what that takes to get through to the other side, and how we answer the question of how much do you love running? Because you are going to have to love it a whole lot to get through endless rehab, endless setbacks and the mental challenges associated with that.

    Stop raging against the realities of your life

    Stop raging against the realities of your life

    Yes, we are talking about NOT running.
     
    Creating space for parenting, business and other adventures. Around here we are usually all about running. And most of the time you hear the story of wow I really struggled and then I figured it out and here I am doing all of the things. This isn't that story. It's accepting that sometimes you have to put one thing down to make space for other things.

    Real Talk: It’s Hard Out There

    In this episode, I give a bit of an update about how things are going post/during? long covid and what training is looking like right now, as well as how to approach the challenges of building a new routine from the ground up for something you used to be quite competent at.

    Beginning again? Don’t be afraid of re-imagining what it could look like

    Beginning again? Don’t be afraid of re-imagining what it could look like

    Do you ever feel like your life has changed, but your goals are stuck and you are just failing them?
    This is a bit of a meandering catch up episode, but this is the core of what I'm talking about. In the last two years, a lot of us have had the benefit of at one time or another, taking a step back and taking stock of what really matters. You've seen it in the great resignation. And I think running or fitness or training is much the same - it's time to take a step back and ask are my goals actually in line with what I want my lifestyle to be? Do I still want to run or do this thing, or am I just keeping going because I'm locked into a sense of identity?
    It's worth taking a scary leap, even if it is different from what you imagined.

    Three fat loss myths we can all agree to leave dead and buried

    Three fat loss myths we can all agree to leave dead and buried

    You can thank all the crappy facebook ads I see for this episode of the podcast
    The ads that really irritate me are the running specific ones, but there are loads of them out there for all kinds of training and all kinds of diets and they are just as bad. Selling you something that sounds too good to be true, because it is. 
    In this episode I'm talking about:
    Three really common (and persistent myths)
    The risk to your mental health during periods of fat-loss if your self-talk isn't where it needs to be
    What to set up for yourself that is sustainable, but also isn't totally dependent on one metric or one number

Real relatable running chat

Thanks for an awesome podcast, so encouraging for new and established runners

Informative and fun for all levels of runners

I have been running for a few years now and am currently coming back to consistent running after an injury and illness. This podcast is relaxed yet informative and has advice/content that is relatable for all levels of runners, catering for all distances and interests (beginners, road races, trails, juggling everything, strength work etc). I have gained so much inspiration and motivation from the podcasts, I highly recommended to other runners, no matter what stage of running you are at.
