Courses and groups

The friendly running group

Welcome to the friendly running group

Please fill in the form below, to receive information by email. All runners are welcome, and you don’t have to be an experienced runner to join. Walking is also fine; we will split up the group on site in case some people prefer to walk. All occasions are planned in a way to make it possible for all to participate according to personal level and preconditions. Our ambition is that all participants should feel happy and inspired afterwards.

We will adjust the basic speed to the group when we are running. It is always OK to walk for a while if you want to. Those who are running in the front, or the leader, will do regular loops to pick up the runners who prefer a slower pace. All exercises can also be adapted to individual capability.

No need to register in advance, but we would love to know if you are interested to join

There is no need to register in advance, and it is also fine to leave earlier if you want to. Furthermore, you don’t need to sign up for the whole semester. You can come and go as you like.

But we would love to receive your notice of interest in this form; information about every running class will be sent out by email once a week. 

Register your interest in the running group

Always on Mondays at 17.15 in Pildammsparken

All occasions will be on Mondays at 17.15 in Pildammsparken with start 29 January. We will meet at Teaterlekplatsen, in the crossing Carl Gustafs väg – Baltiska vägen. We, the leaders of the running group, will be there a few minutes before we start. We will end at the same place as well. Each class will last about 60 minutes.

This is the normal structure of a meeting with the running group

The basic structure will be similar every time we meet:

  • A few exercises to warm up and activate the running muscles
  • Light running
  • Running technique, such as foot placement, posture, and strides
  • More running
  • Exercise to raise the pulse, where all can participate according to individual capacity
  • Slow jogging
  • Stretching, thank you and goodbye

Why is movement important?

Movement is beneficial for body and soul for many reasons: it improves the memory, we learn easier, and it makes us happier and less sensitive for stress.

Contact

The leader of the running group is Lena Örnberg, coordinator for equal opportunities, with the support of colleagues from Malmö University. Please contact Lena Örnberg if you have any questions, lena.ornberg@mau.se, or fill in the form.

Test your lifestyle

Take the Student Health Service's digital tests to get a better picture of your lifestyle. How much do you exercise, do you drink too much, are you stressed, and how are you really feeling at the moment?

Are you worried about the situation in the world?

Right now, many are worried about the situation in the world. If you are worried, talking to someone is often helpful. You can talk to people around you, such as other students, a friend or a parent. You are also welcome to book an appointment with a counselor at the Student Health Service. Below are some tips on what you can do yourself to deal with worry.

How to deal with worry

  • You do not have to read or watch everything. A lot of information and photos of the war are distributed via social media. Limit the amount of news and avoid them right before going to bed.
  • Activate yourself. Try to stop your worries from taking over by focusing on something that makes you feel good. We all need a break from our thoughts. You can, for example, exercise, hang out with friends, watch movies, paint, do crafts or listen to music.
  • Stick to your routines. Try to eat and sleep at regular times. Meet with those you usually meet. Go to scheduled lectures and continue with your self-study as usual.
  • Exercise. Physical activity releases substances in the body that make you feel better and reduce stress. It does not have to be hard training – daily walks can be enough.
  • Engage yourself. If you feel worried, it can be helpful to feel that you are doing something to influence and to provide support to those affected. Look for a context where you yourself feel that you can make a contribution, but think about finding a balance for your commitment so that you can last in the long run.
