HIT THE ROAD FOR A BRIGHT WELLNESS FUTURE
We’ve had great sessions in Running Week, rounded off by the live Q&A with Iona Lake.
Interval training and tempos runs are essential in order to improve your overall performance.
Running-specific exercises are needed to build the strength, agility and explosiveness you’ll need to conquer challenging hill intervals and speed workouts.
Consistency is everything! You have to be consistent in order to improve your stamina.
Training needs to progress from less total training, and less intense training to more total
training volume and more intense sessions.
Focus on easy to digest foods pre-run, especially if you’re going out for a long run. e.g. banana, oats and peanut butter is a great source of pre-run fuel!
Consume fresh and frequent meals that provide your body with enough fuel to sustain the additional exercise you’re doing.
When it comes to meal planning and recipes, try to stock up on real and wholesome food rather than processed and convenience meals.
