'I'm not fast enough.' 'I can't do it.' 'It's too cold out there.' If any of these thoughts feel familiar then you are not alone. Our minds are busy places. They take us on a wild ride of thoughts and feelings everyday. Surprisingly, most of us are unaware of most of our thoughts until they impact our day.

Mindful running is an adventure for the body and mind. If you are a recreational runner, an elite athlete or you simply want to make it around the park on a Saturday morning, mindfulness can support you. The skill of being able to observe our thoughts, memories, or bodily sensations without the need to react to them offers us a variety of benefits. We can improve our focus, our ability to be present, relax our bodies and even overcome the thoughts that get in our way.

This book will help you create a personal mindfulness practise to support your running. Together we will explore the mind and body as you warm up, walk, run and cool down. Bringing your full awareness to your body and observing your mind as you move will help you bring your mind and body back together. That's the best place to be to achieve your goals. Whether your goals are around performance or gaining greater enjoyment of running, mindfulness has something to offer.

You can dip in and out of this book, completing the exercises at your own pace. Either enjoy as a whole or allow the book to guide you through a 4 week mindfulness for runners course. 

Only £6.99 as a paperback or £5.99 on kindle.
