I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
This is my latest self-prescribed therapy, BTW: http://new.livestream.com/accounts/398160/events/1594566
It is a definite mood enhancer But it's not fixed the headache, so I'm off for an early bedtime. Night all
Hi. Just found this forum and was keen to join in. I've been struggling with depression for a long time now. I do find that running helps - but actually getting out and running can be very difficult. I run with two different groups but often I will head off out to drive to the meeting point feeling OK but by the time I get there I've totally lost my nerve and end up bottling out and driving home again without a run. I've had some successes. This time last year I set a new years resolution target of getting my 10k time down below an hour - and succeeded by doing it on New Years Day. Things haven't gone quite so well since and my last 10k I struggled just to finish. My aim is to complete a half marathon or even eventually a full one - but for now I'm having to set my sights on one step at a time in just getting out running again regularly. Any help or support welcome.
Hi LR, I'm generally a lurker but I think it only fair to pop my head in occassionally so that people know that I exist.
I find getting out the door hard and get around it by keeping my mind focused. Forget why you are doing each step of your prep and just concentrate on doing it - 'I'm just going to put these shoes on, I'll just tie the laces, I'll just look for a water bottle etc' If I think about actually running then I think of the cold and dark and never make it out of the door
Thanks for your responses. It's good just to hear from people who know what it's like. I often find that I want to read running magazines but often find them of no help - in fact the opposite when they set things out like training plans which make it look like it''s so easy for other people when I know I couldn't possibly do that myself. There does seem to be a lack of recognition of this type of problem.
ive been on a few different forums on here but just found this one. i have suffered from depression and anxiety for several years now resulting in a couple of 'breakdowns' but now im getting on the other side of it.
ive found running to be a wonderful tool and have been writing a blog on it @
Hi all, (welcome LR & Bricki)
Sorry I've not popped in for a while, been lurking a little. I move house tomorrow and then start my new job on Monday and it's a bit stressful.
Why are you regretting going to see the cinema SOLB? It's a pretty good film (I'm guessing that's not the issue).
I keep reading about your baking By Eck, it makes me hungry! Hopefully Little moo will be better soon.
Peace and love,
Are they like Dime Bars? I can rehome those in my tummy!
Welcome Bricki and LR
