General Training Tips
ALWAYS stretch after a session and recover properly eat some food including protein within 15 minutes after your workout.
LISTEN to your body. If you are sore or tired, modify the workout or have a rest day.
ALTER the training days to suit your week swap the days in the program around but keep to the principle of ’hard/easy’ – do not do 2 hard days in a row!
MIX up the terrain you run on; use grass, gravel roads, bush trails and bitumen. Try and avoid concrete.
The 6 week training program is available to download below.
