Half Way! reflect and refocus

You have just hit the half way point. As most of you have stepped up in the programme you may be finding it very challenging and sometimes when we are in this place we forget to remind ourselves that we are doing well. That's where having markers that help you stop and see your progress can help.

We are now in the second half of the programme and it is time for you to think about what you have achieved over the last 4 weeks. While there will have been tough moments within this time we are sure there will have been moments where you can see your growth. Let yourself feel good about this and start to feel good about the second half of your journey. 

Keep up the good work, you are doing great.

Stretching is a waste of time if not done correctly

Tight calves are a common ailment for our runners and can lead to several injuries. We hear it so often, but what can you do to reduce the risk of injury caused by tight calves? Below is a quick clip showing great stretches - which if done correctly will make your run more enjoyable. 


What happens when you get busy in life? What is the cost?


  • If you would like to help your body out, get a sports massage for those tight muscles. We recommend the team at Active Health. They know our programmes and are the same team how do the Muscle Balance Tests. 
     
  • Headlamps are Helpful!
    We recommend you get one, particularly for the morning crew for the dark morning sessions. You can buy them relatively inexpensively from Bunnings or The Warehouse (on the battery stand). 
  • Remember to stay focused and keep turning up ;-). 
     
  • Keep up your great work. 

'There will be days that you have every excuse under the sun not to go to a session. These are the very sessions that you absolutely HAVE to go to as these are the ones that give you the best sense of achievement.'  – Pam Thomas
