Celebrate with us by staying injury-free on your runs. Our Physiotherapist and Clinic Director, Karen Tyssen, shares her top 7 tips to keep you running strong:

๐Ÿ”น Consistency: Build your fitness with regular mileage and training.

๐Ÿ”น Start Slow: Begin with easy paced runs at 40-50% max effort for 80% of your sessions.

๐Ÿ”น Run Smart: Aim for 3-5 days of low to medium mileage each week. Include 1-2 speed sessions and a longer run.

๐Ÿ”น Rest Up: Take a full day off every 7-10 days to avoid burnout and injury.

๐Ÿ”น Gradual Progress: Increase your mileage by no more than 10% per week.

๐Ÿ”น Strength and Mobility: Incorporate strength training and mobility work 2-3 days a week.

๐Ÿ”น Listen to Your Body: Be flexible with your training. If youโ€™re tired or sore, take an extra day off or cross-train with cycling, swimming, or pool running.

Run happy and injury-free! ๐ŸŒŸ

Beyond working the tents and providing massages, many team members went the extra kilometre to help us show up on event days at our best. We are immensely proud of all those involved in making these events successful.

From coast to coast, weโ€™re committed to promoting health and wellness in our local communities. Stay tuned for more highlights as we head into Juneโ€™s Run for Women events!
