Today I lead the Bridging Group at my running club for the first time.

As I’m now a qualified running leader, thanks to my LiRF course, I thought I should put my learning into practice as soon as possible and threw myself into the deep end by volunteering to lead.

The Bridging Group is the group for people who recently did our start to run course, have just started to run or who are returning to running after injury. We generally start off at 3 miles on road and slowly build up to 6 miles off road. It’s a really good group and very encouraging. Eventually as people build confidence and stamina they move to our faster groups and it’s really nice to see people improve.

So yesterday evening I sat down and planned the session. I had already been sent the 4 mile route so I studied it carefully as the last thing I want is to lose people! I also made sure I knew what I was doing for both the warm up and cool down, I didn’t want to forget anything!

I was a bit nervous beforehand but it went really well. I didn’t lose anyone, the faster people waited at key points for everyone and it was a good atmosphere. The gorgeous weather and beautiful scenery helped too.

I’m really looking forward to leading the group over the next few weeks.
