The evenings will shortly be getting longer so maybe its time to abandon the slippers and dust off your trainers! Here are some handy tips to get you started.
- Set realistic and achievable goals
Decide what your goal is for 2020. For example, participate in your first Run Killarney 10K, half marathon or improve your race performance and get a PB.
- Events calendar
Take time to decide which events you want to take part in for 2020. By registering for an event, it puts a target date to train towards and allow you to become focused on training.
- Train SMART
Build up your training gradually and avoid doing too much too fast.
- Join a running group
Running groups are a great way to stay motivated and improve your performance. In addition, you can get tips and advice from others in the group.
- Training diary
Keep a record of each training session. It can be very inspirational to look back at your progress. Your diary should include what you did in each workout, times and what you ate and how you felt before, during and after.
- Make it fun
All exercise programs should be fun and not feel like punishment.
Run Killarney takes place on Saturday 18th July. Register here to available of early bird rates, valid until 31st January 2020.
