#FishOutofWater challenge for Mental Health Week

By | 07/05/2020

Mental Health Week starts on 11th May and Scottish Swimming have created a fun challenge for all of their members to get involved in. Run with the Scottish Swimming community this Mental Health Week as we aim to accumulate 5000 km from Monday 11th May to Sunday 17th May.

It is not an easy time for anyone, and it is important to keep our mental and physical wellbeing in the best shape possible. Many people have hung up their goggles for running shoes over this lockdown period and have found it to be a great way to boost physical and mental health. Running can control stress and boost the body’s ability to deal with existing mental tension. It also provides an opportunity to clear your mind and gain focus, much like swimming. But as the pools are closed, why not make yourself a #FishOutOfWater next week by grabbing your trainers and recording your session on Strava.

By joining the #FishOutOfWater Strava group, we can work together to improve physical and mental wellbeing and smash our 5000km target.

All you need is a Strava account where you need to join the following clubs:

Please ensure you have read Strava’s privacy guidelines before getting started. They are available to view here. We recommend that all members under the age of 15 should be accompanied by an adult and that the adult should be the user recording their session via Strava.

To get you motivated and moving Tranent and Haddington Clubs have agreed to have a friendly competition between the three clubs to see who can travel the furthest distance over the week.

Get your running shoes on and go MASC!
