Use body weight dynamic movements to warm up as they closely mimic movements made during exercise. Squats and lunges are great for this.

Fuel yourself

Getting your eating habits right will help massively. Balance your diet to include good quality protein, seasonal fruits and vegetables and good fats.

Be sure to Hydrate

You’ll lose a lot of water when you run and your water intake has to increase in line with this. Whatever your current intake, drink at least half a litre more.

Set a target or goal

Having a goal when it comes to running can really spur you on. Why not sign up for a 5km or 10km race in the spring/summer, such as The BMF Major Series?

Enjoy rest days

Rest and recovery are a vital part of training. Stay active, keep moving but lower the intensity. Maybe walk or ride….
