1. Before you get started
2. Training Tips
Congratulations on taking the first step towards improved health and fitness. By following one of the programmes outlined below, you will be one step closer to achieving your goal.
1. Before you get started
Before you get started on any exercise regime it is recommended that you consult your doctor before commencing it, especially if this is your first time.
Once you have been given the all clear to get started then all you need is your own motivation to get started a good pair of running shoes and some dedicated time each week so that you can get out and enjoy the fun of getting fit and active.
2. Training Tips Tip
#1 : Find an achievable volume of training and set yourself up to succeed each week. When people are training themselves they often start off with too much training in the first week. This can quickly lead to burnout and possible injury - an optimal week is one that you can repeat 95% of the time. If you think with your current lifestyle and commitments that you can fit in exercise four times per week and you have previously only been doing one or two set routines then my suggestion is to be realistic with your expectations and start with three sessions and after three weeks if you are succeeding with this then move to four.
Good luck getting started!
Tip #1 : "Never try something on race day that you haven't already trialled when you are training".
