All too often recreational joggers and runners end up frustrated, demoralised or injured while trying to do the right thing to get fitter. This is usually influenced by advice, jargon and ‘top tips’ cascading down from elite athletes, gurus or big sports brands via internet click bait. Advice that tends to focus on the things that put the icing on the fitness cake, rather than the habits that produce the cake in the first place.
This interactive workshop explores how the real habits of champion runners can – and should – be applied by us mere mortals to make us fitter and healthier for the rest of our lives.
It will provide practical advice backed up by simple jargon free explanations of the science behind it. Some common myths will be dispelled, and confusion created by the vast amount of contradictory information available nowadays will be removed.
It is aimed at participants of all levels and jog/run leaders looking to develop knowledge and skills to support their groups.
