Winter Plans at ForgetTheGym

Dec 02, 2023

It's during the winter months that we really need the kick out the door, so thats what we are here for. Our aim is to help you balance out the madness of these final few months of 2023 and then encourage you to start off 2024 on the right foot.

Winding down December : We are at the tail end of our winter term of running classes with just a few weeks of our festive favourite adventures to go! Fancy dress, twinkling lights and christmas markets all on the run - if thats not balance i dont know what is! 


Christmas shopping for runners? If you are looking to find a present for a runner, why not check out my article in last weeks The Irish Times. If you are a member, be sure to check out this months podcast too, as our food coach Dee shares with you all her best christmas presents for the food lovers in your life! 

If you are feeling the chill : I wrote in The Irish Times last month all about Gearing up for Winter, and I've actually popped the whole article in our blog - so you can have a read here if you are not quite sure what to wear on the run these day. 

Membership Adventures : Our membership is 8 months old now and most of our attention this year has gone into making it the best place to be on the internet. We are thrilled with how its going and thanks to everyone for your wonderful feedback. If you are keen to join, get your name on the waiting list, as we will open membership only once next Spring. Find out more about membership

Planning for 2024 : We always have one eye on the future! Once our January classes and members events are underway, attention will then go to our next dublin marathon coaching programme and we have 3 summer retreats (which are all almost booked out) coming too. 

Beach Classes : We start a brand new term for 7 weeks on the beach from 15th January. Suitable for ladies these running classes are full of fun and fresh air - just what we need in January. You can see the full timetable here.

Want to start running? : Our Beginners Running Programme also kicks off on the 15th January. This can be completed 100% online or you can join us in person too in Dublin. This programme gets you up to 5k by March. 

In the media : We were on French National TV (France 2) last month - yes indeed and not for our adventures to France, but they came to us and joined us up on the wicklow mountains. You can see the footage here. What a fab day and location! 

Behind the scenes : This is also the time of the year we look back and reflect on our running year, bringing together lots of photos and memories. There are a LOT to go through but by the end of 2023 we will share with you some of the highlights from our year. 

Wishing you all a little escape from the madness of this season. Remember, you always feel better after a lap around the block - at whatever pace! Be sure to get your dose of fresh air therapy this month! 

Mary, Linda, Aoife and Dee xx
