The evenings are starting to get longer so it’s time to kick of the slippers and put on your runners. Follow our tips to kick-start your Spring training:
- Set realistic and achievable goals.
- Decide what you want to achieve for 2018. For example participate in your first Run Killarney 10K, half marathon or improve your race performance.
- Events Calendar
Take time to decide which events you want to take part in for 2018. 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.
