Create a routine, and stick to it
The hardest part about any training routine is actually getting started! Once you're moving, the rest is pretty simple. One of the biggest training barriers is not knowing what exercises to do. Doing some research and setting up a plan will ensure your training is beneficial to your overall goal. Incorporate a variety of activities and ensure to include rest periods to avoid burning out ahead of the big day.
Have fun whilst training
Pounding the pavement, whilst important, isn’t the only way to train for a running event such as City2South. Incorporating a range of different activities into your workout, such as skipping or a gym class, will help improve your overall fitness and will make training more fun.
Fuel your body correctly
Diet plays a very important role during training. A balanced diet full of fresh ingredients will help fuel muscles, speed up recovery and set you on your way to achieving the best possible results on the day of the run. On top of this, be sure to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Sticking to a healthy diet is most important but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy whatever our guilty food pleasures may be. We are allowed to reward ourselves for our hard work, just make sure you really earn it!
