We love this quote from MSMW runner Peter Chittenden“If age has slowed you up but you still enjoy running then keep going; it may take longer to finish a race but you still run the same distance as the faster runners.”
So what’s your event going to be?
Snow, rain, mud, strong winds…..we’ve had it all this winter! So if you’re a hardy runner what are your tips for training in the winter months?
You’ve probably heard it before, but varying your training programme really can improve your running performance.
So here are our top 3 suggestions to progress your fitness, reduce injuries and keep you motivated;
- Give Yoga a go – there is plenty evidence to suggest that Yoga is a great way to increase your range of motion and help improve your breathing technique.
- Body pump is great for strengthening and provides a complete body work out to include those muscles you may not use in running.
- HIIT will get that heart pumping to improve cardiovascular condition as well as providing a challenging workout that will stop you getting bored of training!
