Urban-Run Training Schedules

Getting Started
Often, the hardest part of getting active, is the first step. Before you start, we recommend you consult with your GP. Tell your doctor of your intention to increase your activity and seek advice on whether anything in particular should be avoided. A visit to a qualified physiotherapist is also be a good idea as is getting advice from staff at your local gym.
.
The Benefits
Many people are put off physical activity because they believe that only vigorous exercise or playing sport counts as healthy activity. But, in fact, substantial health benefits can be achieved from regular activity without the need for special equipment, sporting ability or getting very hot and sweaty.
There is now strong scientific evidence that moderate intensity physical activity – equivalent to brisk walking for 30 minutes per day on most days of the week – is enough to bring about real benefits in terms of promoting health and preventing illnesses. Regular activity can also improve the way you look and feel. In combination with a balanced diet, regular activity can help to maintain a healthy weight. It can even boost self-confidence and reduce the risk of depression.

Hints & Tips
• You are more likely to stick to an activity that you enjoy – this is not about participating in a weekly endurance test! Try out different activities and sports and different facilities and clubs until you find something you like.
• Involve family and friends and make it a social thing. A walk at a pace where you can still talk will allow you to get fit whilst catching up on the latest gossip! Also, activities that you can do as a family or with friends will often help with motivation.
• Try and involve physical activity and sport into other favourite pastimes. If you enjoy listening to music try dance or aerobics classes or even a boogie in your lounge at home for 30 minutes.
• Make the most of what is on your doorstep, try exercising in beautiful scenery, such as on the beach, on the moors or in a park.
• Treat yourself. Set yourself targets and as you reach them, give yourself a little treat such as some new exercise clothes, a trip to the beauty parlour or tickets for a local football match.
