Training program aimed at participation in a 5 km race, lasting five weeks for beginner runners.*
In preparation for Running Under The Moon® every Wednesday, we have free training on the race course starting at 19:00 from the Start-Finish of the race outside the Sports gym of the University of Cyprus
Wager with yourself a feasible goal to stay focused on, for example Running Under The Moon® 5km Individual / Teams Run
Do not get carried away by the excitement from others more experienced runners run based on your training program.
Find or make friends with the same fitness level with you and go together for running.
Do not run full of stomach, if you will go running after work eat a snack or a bar.
Invest in a good pair of shoes, a special pair of running shoes will protect your feet and help you run better. In Cyprus you can find from 40 euros.
All mobile phones have free programs with GPS to measure distance and training time. The ideal is to buy a GPS clock / oscilloscope
Learn to Breathe: Try to keep your breathing slow and steady, it is ideal to breathe from the nose and mouth. The more air reaches our muscles, the better they work.
Stay focused on your training program and not to run quickly at first and then stop.
If you miss a workout it does not matter, move your schedule normally. If Wednesday's training is lost, we do it on Sunday.
Show patience and the result will amaze you.
On June 23, you will be READY
