RUNNING FOR HEALTH AND FITNESS

Pete McBreen, Program Lead, Run To Footstock Clinic 2018

Running can be a great aid to your health and fitness, but like many worthwhile things in life, it can be hard to know where to start and how to improve. This session covers the basics of starting out and how to make your running more social and enjoyable. Many of the observations come from facilitating the Run To Footstock clinic in Cochrane that each year trains a group of beginner and improving runners for the Cochrane Footstock races in early June.

Some principles to think about…

* Aim of all training is to be fit for the next session
* Train easy so you are not stiff and sore the next day
* Occasional heavy breathing is good for you
* Strength before speed
* Practice running at many different paces
* Never race in training, save it for races
* Consistent running makes it easier
* Progressive training gets you fitter
* Remember to play on the hills
* If you are not enjoying running you are doing it wrong

THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS by M.L. Steadman

The debut of a stunning new voice in fiction— a novel both heartbreaking and transcendent After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season and shore leaves are granted every other year at best, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby. Tom, whose records as a lighthouse keeper are meticulous and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel has taken the tiny baby to her breast. Against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them
