Ok, so you’ve signed up for HBF Run for a Reason… now what? Knowing how to start training can be intimidating, so we’re here to help you get well prepared.
We’ve teamed up with an expert team of physios and coaches from Front Runner Sports to bring you these 8-week training guides. Whether you’re going from ‘couch-to-4km’, or from ‘casual-jogger-to-12km’, there’s a personalised plan to help you stay on track for event day.
In each guide, you’ll find references to stretches and running drills. Follow the guidance of a coach for these exercises by clicking the play buttons on the ‘Dynamic Stretches’ and ‘Running Drills’ tabs at the top of each guide.
You’ll also notice that the ‘Coopers Test’ is mentioned. This is a practical test of your current fitness and can be used to determine your ‘Easy-Max’ pace. If you’d like to calculate your exact pace, use this calculator after completing the Coopers Test.
Lastly, if you’d rather not train alone, you can also sign up for HBF Fitness classes, which are free for all HBF Run for a Reason 2019 entrants.
