“To anyone with spare time on their hands, I would suggest volunteering. It is a wonderful hobby in itself; you choose your hours, days and the type of thing that interests you – did you ever get that in work? Now is your opportunity, give yourself a new lease of life and try having a go at all these different jobs – you will, hopefully, be rewarded with thanks, smiles, a feel good factor, a healthy and improved mind set and who knows what else?” Why not give it a go?Barbara Lank, Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend Volunteer
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!
