Top Training tip

Today's running tip is an easy and simple tip, rather than just running and running every week, do a new activity as an alternative e.g. biking/swimming. This is known as cross training, for example replace one run a week with cycling!

This reduces boredom of doing the same old routines, encourages you to learn and develop new skills and hobbies, allows muscle groups and certain body parts (e.g. knees) to be rested which usually get pounded when running and work other muscle groups that are usually ignored, this leads to improved overall conditioning! Furthermore as your usual muscles for running are being rested, it reduces the chance of injury as it gives those muscles much needed recovery time!

Happy running!!
