Operation Move

Lockdown 2.0 with Dr Jen Martin

August 21, 2020

This week’s episode is a wide ranging affair.

I talk to Dr Jen Martin this week. You can find her on instagramtwitter, or on her website. You can also catch her on the radio. Although Jen is pretty busy with all of the fast moving changes to university education over the last few months, I’m grateful that she took the time to have a chat with me this week.

I met Jen through Learn to Run and have coached her since then. You can read a bit more about her story here, but I will also be back in a future episode with more of our chat about how she got into running.

When the new restrictions came into place, I wanted to talk to her as someone who is having to deal with the restrictions as someone who is used to running significantly more than an hour a day, and also as someone who has a great perspective on the wide ranging effects of the pandemic, even for those of us who are really lucky to be where we are.

If you have any follow up questions for Jen, let me know because we’ll be catching up again!
