Training & Nutrition

10 training tips

 

  • Set Realistic Goals

 

Lock in realistic goals that are current to your fitness level and time-frame to prepare.

 

 

  • Get buy in from your partner, friends and family

 

Make sure your loved ones are aware of your goals and training regimen. This will help with the support factor and accountability

 

 

  • Put your Goals on the Fridge

 

This is to remind yourself and everyone in your house of the end goal and what you want to achieve so you have a visual, it stays top of mind and acts as a countdown to the event.

 

 

  • Get a Running kit

 

Make sure you have comfortable clothes and shoes that you like. When you look good, you feel good too.

 

 

  • Find someone to train with

 

This will help you stay motivated and will mean you are less likely to forgo your training.

 

 

  • Set a realistic training program

 

Make sure this is suitable for you, your fitness level and age. It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach.

 

 

  • Run somewhere enjoyable

 

Train in an area that you like, even if it means jumping in the car and driving for 20 minutes to get there.

 

 

  • Run in the morning

 

Get it out of the way so you can get on with the rest of your day. Afternoon or evening training tends not to happen after a long and busy day.

 

 

  • Lock in the same day of training

 

Have set days that you train; three to four times a week at the same time.

 

 

  • Be prepared for wet or cold weather

 

Have a plan so you stick to your training. Get wet-weather clothes or gear for when it’s cold so you can still train.
