Fun runs are a fantastic way to get started into fitness, have a goal, train with your mates and do a good deed for charity. Before you do though make sure you have done these please…
1. you should always check with your docotor before starting any new fitness program to ensure that you’re healthy enough for exercise. Can’t remember the last time you went for a run? IT’S VITAL to rule out any health conditions that might make intensive exercise risky.
2.Do a quick fitness self assessment. If you can walk 15 mintues at a pace at which your breathing is laboured but you’re still able to speak, then you’re ready to train for a 5km run. Too CHALLENGING? Start with daily 5 to 10 minute walks and to 15 minutes 3 or 4 times a week.
3. KEEP YOURSELF HYDRATED! 2 TO 3 LITRES PER DAY PLEASE YOU CAN AND WILL DO IT! BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND THE POWER WITHIN YOU!
