Hi, my name is Caroline Geoghegan and I started this blog in 2018 with a view of helping people just like you to navigate the world of running.
Running has changed my life in so many ways. You read more about my story here. I’m now on a mission to share my love of running with as many people as possible.
I truly believe that there is so much more to running than just, well, running! It order to get better at it, you need to be focusing on movement and exercises off the running track.
On my blog, I write about many different things when it comes to running, from 5k and 10k running to strength training and speedwork. I’ve summarised some of the key articles below to get you started.
Be sure to check out the topics above too for more running inspiration!
I also run Couch to 5k and steady 5k running groups in my hometown of Waterbeach, Cambridge.
New to running?
If you’re new to running – welcome! I regularly work with beginner runners and I write a lot about beginner running on my blog.
5k and beyond
Once you’ve run your first 5k, you may be looking for your next challenge. If so, there are plenty of options out there for you depending on your preferences.
There is so much off the running track that you need to think about and include in your training if you want to become stronger and faster.
One of the best things about running is that it is limitless in terms of setting goals. There are so many ways to improve and challenge yourself. If you’d like to be able to run faster or achieve your next PB, there are many ways to approach this.
Running form is so important but it is often overlooked by many runners. Proper running form can help you run more efficiently and make you less injury prone.
If you keep getting injured, it may be a sign that you need to change something in your training plan. Injuries can often be prevented with the right approach.
Running and mental health
There’s no doubt running has many physical and mental health benefits. You can think of running as a form of moving meditation.
Running is HARD! If you struggle to motivate yourself to go for a run, then dig deep inside and find that thing that makes you want to get out there and hit the pavcment.
Food and nutrition
Food and nutrition for runners are really important. Without proper nutrition, you make the mistake of not fuelling your race in the right way.
