Welcome to part 3 of our 100 running tips! We have some great ones for this week! At Ealing Fit club we run programmes that absolutley support our runner, from our women only, Fit to Run programme, to our Re-Lease workshops and of course our fantastic range of HIIT and Resitances classes.
1.Relaxing while you are running.
While you are running, it is not a good time to be bunching up your shoulders towards
your ears. When you run it is best to relax, so that you can maximize the benefits you
can derive from it. Thus, let you jaw hang loose when you are doing it, as well as shake
out your arms as well as your hands in order to relax.
2. Think in minutes when running.
One of the biggest mistakes that some runners have is to focus more on the number of
miles they have covered. This is actually not the kind of mindset you want to have when
you are running. Instead of thinking about the distance covered, you should become
more focused on the time spent on it. If you are able to maintain running for a longer
period of time, covering a longer distance with it would simply follow.
3. Make running another way of meeting new friends.
In order to meet new people when you are running, one of the things you can do for it is
to sign up with a local running club. To find one, what you can do is to check with
running fitness centers. Aside from that, you can also do a quick search through the
internet, in order to find running clubs in your community.
4.Sign up for a race.
Signing up for a race can actually make you more excited in running. This is because
you don’t want to be the last person to cross the finish line. Aside from that, finishing the
race can also motivate you more. Thus, once you see an upcoming race being
promoted, sign up with it as soon as you can.
5. Make up a good running schedule.
There are some people who may get hooked by running, in which they no longer give a
chance to other important activities, such as spending time with their loved ones. Thus,
make sure that you are able to properly balance your schedule for running and other
important matters. This way, you still get to enjoy running, without certain people
regretting that you got involved with it.
6.Don’t carry loose change when you are running.
One of the most annoying things that you can experience is to have loose change on
your shorts when you are running. Thus, you should not carry them whenever you are
running. Aside from the fact that it can annoy you, it can also distract others who are
running along with you.
7. Don’t overdo it.
It is quite normal that you can find yourself talking more about running, even at work or
at your own dining table. However, you should not overdo it, since some people may get
tired of hearing the same topic from you all day. Try to talk about something else,
especially with people who are not interested about running.
8. Run at home without a treadmill.
If its raining or icy and you dont have treadmill or you are short on time you can join a Power Walking online class. These are great home workouts you can do live or recorded. They are great for adding something different into the mix with your training. We are runnning our 'PWR walk masterclass next Monday, 17th May 2021 at lunchtime. You can book here to grab a place.
9. Whenever you are running, certain things may begin to rub.
Running can actually result for things to begin to rub. This can actually lead to
experiencing something painful such as blisters and even bleeding nipples. To prevent
it, make use of clothing that would not cause too much friction. Aside from that, you can
also use Vaseline by applying it on the affected areas.
10. Set a day or two apart for running hard.
Running two hard days straight is actually not a good idea, since it can put too much
pressure on your muscles. Aside from that, it would not provide your body with enough
time to rest and recuperate. Therefore, it is important to set your hard running days a
day or two apart, so that your body would be provided with time to recover and prevent
overworking your muscles.
