Get Set To Go - In Lockdown

The Get Set to Go team have been busy thinking about how best to stay active and positive during the pandemic. In order to support all our service users, we've created some tips on how to stay healthy and keep fit during lockdown. We know being physically active can enhance your mood so how about taking a look to see what might make you feel good.

Activities

Couch to 5K

Join us for a virtual Couch to 5k on Facebook 

We have set up a private Facebook group for people who want to start running (however slowly) but need some support to do so. We're using the NHS's Couch to 5k Click Here  which is available as a podcast for apple and android phones, as well as text.

You'll need comfy clothes, running shoes and to be able to commit to 3 sessions a week, with one at the weekend and a day's rest between each session. You'll receive support from some of the Get Set to Go team as well as others who are learning to build running (however slowly) into their lives too. 

To get started, you can complete the referral form click here and email it to [email protected] or contact project Co-Ordinator Janet Paske on 07342 888 628. Please note she usually works Mondays and Tuesdays. 

Mindful Monday 21 Sept 2020

We're running 2 short afternoon walks at Manor Lodge to celebrate #MindfulMonday.

Green Estates will open up the Tudor grounds so people will be able to enjoy the apothecary and lavender beds. Places are limited to 5 per walk so first come first served. It's just over a 30 minute walk from the train station, good for cycling and with lots of bus services running nearby. For more information and how to book click here.

Get Set To Go Blog


Our Peer Mentors have been having a think about their own experiences of getting active and if and what they enjoyed, what barriers they had encountered and what they would recommend to people who are keen to get more active but maybe lacking the confidence to take the plunge.

We will be posting these observations on the site so do have a read here

About Get Set To Go

Our Get Set to Go programme is designed to improve the quality of life for anyone with a mental health problem through access to sport and physical activity in the local community.

Although we have had to change the way we do things we are still doing all we can to facilitate events and activities and hope to revisit some of the elements - such as training  - that we have had to put on hold.
