Running Tips

The main problem people have when embarking on a love-affair with running is that they bite off a little bit more than you can chew.

Thinking that you can run that 10k right away is more than wishful thinking. 

Christine says: "You have to be very kind to your body, your body will adapt but you have to give it the right stimulus through training.

"The idea behind training is to build up tolerance both physically and mentally; you can’t just jump in gung-ho.

"You have to treat your body kindly and it will do its job, if you just throw it into the deep end with no thought or reasoning to how it's going to cope then that’s how you get hurt so you need to build yourself up."

Everyone is different, so how you start off is dependent on your level of fitness, but whatever level you are just remember to ease yourself into it and you'll be fine.
