Always substitute cross-training for running if you are injured, very sore or it is not safe to run.

Please add a Core conditioning, Pilates or Yoga classes once or twice a week if you have time.

Try to stretch every day for at least 10 minutes.

Always eat within 20 to 30 minutes of finishing a run.

Always train at your target pace, don’t compromise or run too hard. Tiredness always catches up and take extra rest if required.
