Walking Group

What is it?

The Jog Scotland Walking group is an exciting new walking programme launched by Jog Scotland following the Jog Scotland ethos of making friends and having fun whilst getting healthy at the same time.

Who is it for?

The programme is aimed for all abilities of walkers from complete beginner’s right up to regular walkers aged 16 and over. The programme can be a very beneficial way of gradually increasing your fitness before you give our Jog Scotland Jogging Groups a try. The programme can also be of benefit to injured runners looking to regain some fitness whilst they rehabilitate their injury.

Who do the sessions work?

Over the ten weeks the group will be led by our highly motivated walk leaders who will be with you every step of the way taking you through a structured walk each week. The walks will be structured in a way that you will have a warm up, main component with a variety of walking drills employed and finishing off with a nice cool down. There will be plenty of time whilst out walking to get to know your new walking partners too so you will have made new friends in no time.

Jogscotland Runners Stories

LIZ – JOGSCOTLAND

I joined Jog Scotland around Easter 2007. I was 53 years old and had never run before apart from trying to catch a bus. Initially, I really didn’t fancy it much, as firstly I didn’t want to get my hair wet if it was raining, and secondly the fact I had no prior experience of running!

After successfully completing the first block, I then decided to move up to the end game of running 20 minutes after a 10 week block. Much to my surprise, I also successfully achieved this block, but decided I needed to attend two nights a week in order to maintain this. On reflection, it was at this point I was beginning to get hooked. I was running not with my friends as they were all in different groups, but with people at a similar pace to myself. I was purely running for increasing and maintaining fitness at that time and was beginning to look forward to the continuing challenge. I continued gradually moving up the groups after repeating some a few times (I admittedly like to be in my comfort zone). My initial goal was to run a 5k and it wasn’t long before I did, thanks to the progressive Jog Scotland programme, I completed a 5k in 2008 in around 37 minutes. There was no going back now!

To date, Jog Scotland has helped me to achieve 2 half marathons, one when I was 59 and another when I was 64 (I managed to achieve this after having not run for a period of 8 week due to a major operation). Obviously taking advice from the doctors who stated I could start again after an 8 week period. Over the years I have recognised that I run at a pace of eleven minutes per mile or seven minutes per kilometre. This pace of mine does not get any faster, however; over the years I have not slowed down either. My half marathon times were exactly the same despite being 5 year apart.

Finally, I would never have envisaged that I would be running regularly at the age of 65, yes there are people older than me, and alongside friends. The Jog Scotland programme undeniably works no matter your size, shape, age or indeed your mental well-being – we all have the same goal of maintaining a healthy well-being and ultimately to enjoy. I am thankful to the Jog Scotland community to welcoming me and supporting me over the past 12 years.
