Eating before the run?
We are all different so what works for one person might not for another, the longer you can leave between eating and exercising the better
As a guideline, a small snack (crackers, banana, nuts/dried fruit) between 30 mins to 2 hours before class will give you energy for the class. Ensure you are well pre-hydrated also by drinking plenty of water throughout the day.
Eating too much or too soon (for you) before class may give you a stitch and make you feel tired and bloated, and it's not fun when your food talks to you during a run!
The run/walk sessions for Get Running last about 30 mins so all-in-all we are usually completely finished within 40-45 mins
The Stay Running sessions do run a bit longer and we might find the sessions increasing from 45-60 as the program proceeds
What about the weather?
We run rain or shine. A light rain jacket can come in useful in the case of wet weather and also a hat or visor to keep the rain off.. You will warm up on a run (body temperature increases ~ 20%) so light layers are good. Please bring a towel for the car for after if it is raining.
Please ensure you wear sunscreen during periods of sunshine.
- Feeling nervous? Remember, this is everyone's first class
- It is normal to be nervous, so please don't worry about not being fit enough for the class
- You will be able to go at your own pace throughout, and we hope you will enjoy it
