jogscotland group graduate.

31/03/2014

The true versatility of Dumfries Running Club was illustrated this week when 21 members of the jogscotland group graduated on Monday after a 10 week supported programme to encourage newcomers to take part in sport...

Beginning in late January, the structured programme was designed to take people from a standing start and to give them the confidence to enjoy an active lifestyle. For the first four Mondays, walking and intermittent jogging got the group used to movement with the encouragement that comes from joining in with like minded individuals.

For the following six weeks, jogging and walking in alternate 2 minute time periods stretched to 10 minutes of running with a few minutes of walking, and the enthusiasm of all participants was an inspiration to the team of jogleaders led by Sandy Shankland and Margaret Gray.

As the group moved further each week on the Queen of the South cycle path it was good to hear that almost everyone had managed to find time to walk or jog in smaller groups at other times in the week and this helped create such a positive attitude which encouraged everyone to do their best.

Following on from the success of this inaugural group, it is planned to start  another programme in the coming months.
