I have started running – yes running you herd me – I’m trying to loose weight for a Brazilin Jujitsu competition and I thought I give running a go.
I did previously try to run in a past life but I my calf’s would always get really tight and my feet tingly. So I kind of ignored this wonderful and painful type of exercise until now. ..
How did it start ? Hove Park, in Brighton. My son goes to school in hove park so on Monday evening in the dark (as I was a bit embarrassed) I tried running a quarter of the park, then the following week I did an half and then a whole.
Then with one on the mums of the school after drop of I did 4k, it nearly killed me but I was happy. So I invested in some running shorts (sports direct some running socks to help with circulation) and boom I’m running 5k and I bloody love it. My next step is Park Run at hove park.
I am now running 2-3 times a week, normally 5k, my body seams to like that distance. I’m desperately trying to beat my PB of 27.40 which I did on holiday.
So if you see me in Brighton or Hove running around come and join me for a couple of Kilometres!
So here a re a few tips I’m using to help my running journey
1 Warm up, its really to a warm the muscles up, with mobilisation and light stretching, focusing of calf’s, knee and hips , don't forget back n neck
2 Start slow don't try n race a marathon baby steps run small distances. Increase the distance slowly but try to run regularly. With always time for your body to recover.
3 Use an app like RunKeeper or Strava – there great for keeping track of how long and how far your running. And great for giving your self goals!
4 Stretch and cool down after, find a nice spot to stretch those legs, try to hold each stretch for at least 45 seconds
5 Run regularly. It really helps it improves your steamier confidence, three times a week is perfect, so you have time to recover.
6 Book an appointment for a sports massage in Hove and Brighton. The massage will help with any tight muscles or little muscles strains and stretch you out for your next run!
