We’re bringing together the narrative of running and wellness this month. Meet Kriste Peoples, a runner, meditation guide and Altra Elite Trail Running Ambassador.
Kriste narrates two five-minute running mediations to put you in the mindset for the run ahead and day behind.
RUN WARMUP MEDITATION
Take a few minutes before your run to get into the mindset of what is to come.
Runners are not immune to the stresses of life and these five minutes from Kriste will help clear the mind so you can step into your run with a clearer vision.
Kriste starts you with deep breathing, filling the lungs and getting them ready and ending with the mindset for a strong run ahead.
5 MINUTE GUIDED MEDITATION
This is a guided mediation for rest to be done seated or lying down in a comfortable, quiet place.
These quiet minutes allow you to identify any areas of stress and slowly unwind at the end of day, or to start the morning with a clear head. Say goodbye to discomfort with deep breathing and intention.
