Training for your long distance run

Written by: Sam Theyers – Anytime Fitness Australia Head of Fitness

Running any long distance requires training if you want to do well, if you want to enjoy it and even if you simply want to complete it without injury.

There are a few things that I recommend you implement into your training in order to be race ready in time for the event. Before you begin, decide how many days you can commit to training each week as any form of training will make a significant difference vs. doing nothing at all.

Here are my top recommendations:

  1. Build a foundation

 

  1. Implement interval training into your weekly schedule

 

  1. Invest in good running shoes

 

Good luck in your Wings for Life World Run!
