Have a go at...............joining a running club
If you've never been big on running, you've probably never considered joining a club. Now may be the perfect time for a rethink your stance.
If you're training for a race, looking to improve technique or simply want to run off the problems of the day, running clubs offer a world of benefits.
Why?: If you’re worried whether you are ‘good enough’ or ‘ready’ to join a running club, the answer is yes. Surrounding yourself with experienced, enthusiastic people, you’re more likely to run long-term, instead of depending solely on your own motivation. Seeing what others who started off just like you have achieved will inspire you to keep training.
How It Works: Running clubs offer a social environment to help better your training . You can improve your running ability with a variety of different types of training road running to cross country, trail, off-road and fell running.
Benefits: Develop new friendships with people who share your passion for running and exercise, discover your competitive streak, a club helps you set targets and a boost in motivation. Exercise is medicine, running can help prevent obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, some cancers,and can vastly improves the quality of your emotional and mental life
