Tyne Bridge Harriers: Inspiring PB’s

Denise Waugh posts this article which highlights the benefits of being part of a Running Club such as Tyne Bridge Harriers to aid recovery and help achieve new PB’s.

Inspiring PB’s

It’s exactly 8 months since I injured myself (just before running Park Run and still stupidly doing the run) – resulting in a badly broken heel and severe tendon damage. Having been in plaster, and being told by my consultant that running would probably be out of the question again, I volunteered/watched at Park Run each week and tried to think about which low-impact form of activity I would take up once I could actually exercise again. Two months ago, I started from scratch again (jog, walk, jog etc) and felt terrible every time I tried to run – my fitness level was at rock bottom and so was my confidence.

Then…along came Tyne Bridge Harriers to my rescue!! After a few visits, where I could only manage a tiny part of the sessions, I started to recover (helped by the support I was receiving from the members and the patience and advice of the coaches).

Although I’m still not properly fit, and have to be very careful regarding the injury, I am really pleased to have achieved a Park Run PB today and I would like to thank TBH for helping me get there.

Cheers TBH!

    Fantastic article Denise! We could use excerpts from this as the ‘inspirational quote of the day’ for many days to come. I hope to see many more PBs from you in the future.
