Joining the RunPod Run Club in this episode is someone who has been working relentlessly, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, since March 2020. Olivia Tompkins is a nurse working for the NHS in intensive care, where her patients have, or are recovering from, Covid-19. It’s a high pressure job which requires great strength of mind so after a long shift, you’d think it’s time to head home and relax.....not for this nurse: Livvy turns to running and CrossFit. Jenni and Livvy discuss a day in the life of an NHS intensive care nurse, how challenging it is, how on earth she has the energy to work out and why actually it’s so important to her to go running and lift some weights. It’s a fascinating, moving and emotional insight into life at the hospital and a deeply inspiring, motivating and humbling account of Livvy’s day to day experiences. A must-listen which will make you realise you truly have no excuse to get out of that run yourself.
