(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:07:23 +0100)
@gcarinlevy @ShaanOT #Occhat I do, not as often as I would like to but regularly run and enter 10k “races”
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:07:32 +0100)
@ShaanOT @elaamleung great to have you here #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:07:41 +0100)
@ShaanOT I’ll say a bit about my study. Wanted to focus on women as studies find lower participation in exercise #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:08:52 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @gcarinlevy 10k ‘races’, that sounds serious! #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:08:59 +0100)
@kirstyes @ShaanOT @elaamleung Hi, just follow the hashtag #occhat and don’t forget to add it to your posts. Things tend to move fast so don’t panic..
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:09:20 +0100)
@Helen_otuk love to hear RT @ShaanOT : Ill say a bit about my study. Wanted to focus on women as studies find lower participation in exercise #occhat

(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:09:47 +0100)
@ShaanOT Interviewed 6 women about the meanings they attribute to running using IPA #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:09:49 +0100)
@kirstyes . @gcarinlevy @shaanot Why “races” and not races? ;0) #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:10:12 +0100)
@CharOTReilly #Occhat @saradavie join occhat tonight, discussing women & running like your #researchproject
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:10:31 +0100)
@pd2ot Hi #occhat ers I’m ‘sort of’ here!
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:11:13 +0100)
@BillWongOT @ShaanOT haha! I guess I will be a man listening about this research… and wondering if it’s applicable to men. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:11:36 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @ShaanOT #occhat what was the outcome of your interviews? any themes arise?
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:11:56 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @elaamleung welcome, glad you could join us. Any questions please ask. Don’t forget the #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:12:13 +0100)
@ShaanOT Main findings were: Connecting with the physical self 1/4 #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:12:26 +0100)
@ShaanOT Influencing the psychological self 2/4 #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:12:48 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @ShaanOT great question! #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:12:49 +0100)
@ShaanOT Self-development #occhat 3/4
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:13:10 +0100)

@kirstyes . @ShaanOT Was this in terms of having time to think or?? #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:13:58 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @BillWongOT @ShaanOT thank you #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:14:26 +0100)
@BillWongOT @ShaanOT I definitely see that… from my ex-classmates who run regularly, particularly marathons, on their Facebook statuses. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:14:28 +0100)
@ShaanOT @BillWongOT You’ll have to see if you think it is applicable, only studied women so far #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:14:28 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @ShaanOT were they ‘serious’ runners or ‘fun’ runners? #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:14:33 +0100)
@kirstyes . @ShaanOT and was this more about the natural world rather than social and people? #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:14:43 +0100)
@LeonoraOT @ShaanOT Hi Shaan, looking in from downunder? #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:14:54 +0100)
@BillWongOT @ShaanOT Absolutely! I also see that from my ex-classmates who are runners. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:14:58 +0100)
@ShaanOT @Helen_otuk Mixture, some were beginners and some competitive although not elite runners #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:15:12 +0100)
@kirstyes . @LeonoraOT morning ;0) @shaanot #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:15:39 +0100)
@ShaanOT @LeonoraOT Hi great to have you along #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:15:45 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @LeonoraOT hello, good morning to you. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:15:52 +0100)
@BillWongOT @ShaanOT I also agree… heard this from a mom of 2 young kids at my church. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:15:54 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @BillWongOT yes Bill you will have to give us a male perspective! #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:16:13 +0100)
@kirstyes . @BillWongOT @shaanot How so Bill? What did she say about running and self development? #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:16:54 +0100)
@ShaanOT @kirstyes Connecting with the world was about social and natural environment. Interestingly mutual support was a key meaning #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:16:57 +0100)
@ShaanOT Does anyone identify with these meanings in their leisure activities physical or not? #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:18:23 +0100)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes @ShaanOT because even though her family is not well-off, but she values it so that she can set a great ex. for her kids. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:18:56 +0100)
@Helen_otuk It’s #occhat this evening do drop by and say hi and hear about @shaanOT ‘s research. Women who run!
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:19:08 +0100)
@pd2ot #occhat Interesting topic/study. Running is a bit of a nemesis of mine (links with past ED), but can relate to findings for other activity
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:19:18 +0100)
@kirstyes . @ShaanOT so did most of the women run with others? Was there any mention of being afraid to run alone? #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:20:28 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @ShaanOT yes Shaan i can see it from my walking! Not as energetic but still very much resonate some of the same points. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:20:41 +0100)
@LeonoraOT #occhat Good morning/evening all πŸ™‚
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:20:49 +0100)
@BillWongOT @ShaanOT Not a regular runner, but I did like it whenever there was an opportunity when I was in elementary and high school. #occhat 1/2
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:21:02 +0100)
@kirstyes . @ShaanOT I’d say 2-4 apply to my writing for sure #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:21:20 +0100)
@ShaanOT within my study I explored how meaning may not be addressed in some exercise interventions and what OS and OT could add #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:21:38 +0100)
@theremonstrator RT @LeonoraOT : #occhat Good morning/evening all πŸ™‚
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:21:43 +0100)
@pd2ot @ShaanOT #occhat Absolutely, all 4 to some extent. Most of all to connection to physical self – find that improves overall sense of self
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:21:50 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @ShaanOT from the ‘social’ aspect did they run with a club? #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:21:50 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @ShaanOT #occhat i do karate and I def relate to self-developemt & connecting with others, esp as all have similar interests
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:21:53 +0100)
@kirstyes . @BillWongOT @shaanot great. Does she do alone or with the kids? Or friends? #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:21:56 +0100)
@BillWongOT @ShaanOT Running a mile is just right for me when I was at school because it does promote some friendly competition. #occhat 2/2
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:22:04 +0100)
@kirstyes RT @ShaanOT : within my study I explored how meaning may not be addressed in some exercise interventions and what OS and OT could add #occhat

@Helen_otuk RT @ShaanOT : within my study I explored how meaning may not be addressed in some exercise interventions and what OS and OT could add #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:23:15 +0100)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes @ShaanOT she did it alone because her kids were only 6 and 3 or 4, I believe. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:23:17 +0100)
@kirstyes . @ShaanOT Great was going to add what Occupational science could add. #occhat Had a quick look at the doc you shared on Facebook.
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:23:32 +0100)
@ShaanOT @Helen_otuk Most ran with a club, not all but all did have some sort of a connection with other runners through a club or races #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:23:37 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @ShaanOT thanks for clarifying. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:24:17 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @ShaanOT For me, I like table tennis because I like competition. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:24:23 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @ShaanOT But when I have my first OT paycheck, I would invest in a set of brand new golf clubs and/or disc golf discs. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:25:34 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @ShaanOT did those who ran in ‘races’ have different views to the beginners? #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:25:36 +0100)
@ShaanOT @kirstyes framed within the context of being, becoming and belonging. Could be a framework for public health interventions #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:25:49 +0100)
@BillWongOT @ShaanOT @Helen_otuk I know my OT peers would talk amongst each other when doing marathons. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:26:16 +0100)

(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:26:52 +0100)
@BillWongOT @ShaanOT @kirstyes I did see that a bit when I did my mental health placement. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:26:56 +0100)
@ShaanOT @elaamleung That’s interesting lots of the women talked about noticing the physical body #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:27:03 +0100)
@ShaanOT @BillWongOT Yes the social aspect was particularly strong #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:27:51 +0100)
@allisulli Hi #occhat ! Sorry I am late to the discussion today. Duty calls. Running has meant many different things to me a various points in my life.
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:28:02 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @otnotes it is an #occhat today,but you can still catch up on the blog after. Have a good meeting.
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:28:24 +0100)
@ShaanOT @Helen_otuk perhaps surprisingly no. All had a running identity though regardless of level of participation #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:28:58 +0100)
@ShaanOT @allisulli yes I think that’s important to note that meanings are dynamic #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:29:51 +0100)
@allisulli @ShaanOT did u look at how some use running as a defense mechanism that can result in self-harm, as a tool for avoiding feeling pain #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:30:08 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @allisulli hi glad you could make it. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:30:09 +0100)
@BillWongOT @ShaanOT @elaamleung The mom I talked about earlier mentioned about body mechanics, since she didn’t wanna inflict old injury. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:30:36 +0100)
@allisulli RT @ShaanOT : @allisulli yes I think that’s important to note that meanings are dynamic #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:30:52 +0100)
@kirstyes . @Helen_otuk @shaanot would like to hear more about the? #occhat what would that look like in public health?
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:30:55 +0100)
@Helen_otuk RT @ShaanOT : @allisulli yes I think thats important to note that meanings are dynamic #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:31:13 +0100)
@ShaanOT @allisulli No there does seem to be quite a lot of literature out there on that. Didn’t come up in my participants though #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:31:43 +0100)
@stairliftscheme RT @Helen_otuk : RT @ShaanOT : @allisulli yes I think thats important to note that meanings are dynamic #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:31:44 +0100)
@CastleDaisy @ShaanOT first time joining #occhat Sorry I’m late. I run for psychological need & to engage with the world around me. Alone is best
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:31:50 +0100)
@BillWongOT RT @Helen_otuk : RT @ShaanOT : @allisulli yes I think thats important to note that meanings are dynamic #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:32:24 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @shannot Could be a framework for public health interventions… very interested in this. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:32:57 +0100)
@kirstyes . @allisulli @shaanot interesting concept. #occhat result in self-harm how? Possibly a protective use too?
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:33:05 +0100)
@ShaanOT @BillWongOT Yes detailed talk and awareness of the body seemed very strong #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:33:35 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CastleDaisy @ShaanOT I guess it depends on what the purpose of running is. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:33:37 +0100)
@allisulli I stopped running, tho I’d been an avid runner for a solid decade, when my yoga teacher asked me, “What are you running from?” #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:33:45 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CastleDaisy @ShaanOT casual can be done alone. competitive maybe good to have a few partners. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:33:59 +0100)
@CharOTReilly #occhat , media influence could make women want 2 look a particular way & thats y chose 2 run. Public health campaign 2 focus on run4health
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:34:02 +0100)
@kirstyes . @CastleDaisy @shaanot Do you not get anxious about running alone? #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:34:28 +0100)
@allisulli RT @CharOTReilly : #occhat , media influence could make women want 2 look a particular way & thats y chose 2 run. Public health campaign 2 focus on run4health
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:34:53 +0100)
@BillWongOT @ShaanOT yes, she said proper form is more important than speed, as she believed that speed will come later. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:35:02 +0100)
@ShaanOT @CharOTReilly Yes, what I found interesting was the meanings went far beyond health related meanings #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:35:15 +0100)
@kirstyes @allisulli or running to? #occhat did you not enjoy running then?
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:35:39 +0100)
@Helen_otuk RT @ShaanOT : @CharOTReilly Yes, what I found interesting was the meanings went far beyond health related meanings #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:35:50 +0100)
@CastleDaisy @BillWongOT @shaanot different occupational need for all. Colleagues run to be competitive #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:35:54 +0100)
@ShaanOT @CastleDaisy Yes challenge and achievement was a strong meaning also #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:36:33 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @allisulli does it have to be running from, could it be seeking out? Head towards? #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:36:41 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOTReilly Just curious… have you heard of Shaq’s Big Challenge? #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:37:05 +0100)
@allisulli @kirstyes @ShaanOT if accustomed to tuning out pain, & not balancing running w a dedicated stretching program, easy to b injured #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:37:08 +0100)
@kirstyes . @ShaanOT @charotreilly That’s def where OS can contribute.I think a lot of public health rests on people prioritising being healthy #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:37:11 +0100)
@ShaanOT @Helen_otuk Yes Discovery, exploration and freedom was discussed a lot also #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:37:26 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @elaamleung dont forget the #occhat , great to have you here.
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:37:53 +0100)
@ShaanOT @kirstyes I agree #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:38:01 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @kirstyes i become anxious running alone if is dark #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:38:15 +0100)
@kirstyes . @allisulli @shaanot Ah, I see. Thanks. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:38:23 +0100)
@cgenter #occhat @shaanOT Late again! did they talk alot about how they got into running, was there any themes related to that?
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:38:28 +0100)
@KerstinGadsden @allisulli #occhat : and did you run from something? I wouldn’t necessarily think that is a main reason to pursue running?
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:38:38 +0100)
@allisulli @Helen_otuk for a time I was definitely running toward something positive. In the aftermath of trauma, it was less healthy #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:38:49 +0100)
@ShaanOT @kirstyes Some people said they felt empowered, they would normally be worried but didn’t when running #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:39:07 +0100)
@elaamleung @Helen_otuk oh thanks! #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:39:12 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @cgenter good evening, glad you made it. #occhat

@CharOTReilly @ShaanOT #occhat yes exercise & leisure can have in-depth meanings.

@ShaanOT @cgenter Interestingly often got into running to lose weight, but said that wasn’t why they kept running #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:40:28 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @allisulli yes, so fluctuating meanings again, so important to be aware of why engaging? Acknowledge and have awareness of why? #occhat

@clissa89 @ProfSocialWork sorry to miss #swscmedia – I’m also missing #occhat as worked late tonight, but looks like an interesting discussion!
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:41:32 +0100)
@allisulli @KerstinGadsden in this case, I was literally running scared. I was running to avoid painful thoughts & feelings, bc was “healthy” #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:41:48 +0100)
@kirstyes @CastleDaisy @shaanot that’s good. Sad we have to think about safety but we do. #occhat

(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:42:40 +0100)
@ShaanOT @cgenter varying combinations of the other meanings I think. Identity, being a runner seemed part of it #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:42:51 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOTReilly If I also remember, the Biggest Loser (another US show), also have participants run a good bit in + other exercises. #occhat

@BillWongOT @kirstyes @ShaanOT @CharOTReilly because it was his attempt to raise awareness to the increasing rate of obesity. #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:43:38 +0100)
@allisulli @Helen_otuk I was lucky to have such a caring teacher. She pointed out to me how something “healthy” had become less so for me #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:43:46 +0100)
@cgenter @ShaanOT #occhat the first race was v significant I’m sure, I can remember my wife’s and feeling more nervous than her I think!

@gcarinlevy @kirstyes @shaanot @cgenter #Occhat I can really relate to the theme of running and self identity, self actualisation – as with other sports

@ShaanOT anyone use physical activity as an intervention? Anyone used running? #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:51:14 +0100)
@KerstinGadsden @ShaanOT #occhat , not used serious exercising as therapy, but in Elderly mental health we would do regular exercise groups, very low impact
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:52:52 +0100)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes @KerstinGadsden @allisulli it could be from developing a routine, to activity modification (such as for ppl w/ COPD). #occhat
(Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:52:56 +0100)
@gcarinlevy @ShaanOT #Occhat no but I use it in role as educator- took bunch of 1st yrs out for run and asked them to reflect on value & meaning to them
