Tina Chantrey’s 3 tips to getting started
“Five years ago I separated, then divorced and became a single mum to a three, six and nine-year-old.
Running saved my life
If you are having your own difficult life experience it may save yours too.”
1 – The correct kit is essential!
The 2 most important items are good trainers and a sports bra.
Cheap trainers can lead to injury!!
2 – Start slow
Slower than you think is slow!
Power walk for 5-10 minutes to warm up, then jog between two lampposts followed by walking between the next two.
Gradually increase the distance you run, and eventually you won’t have to walk!
3 – Be kind to yourself
Don’t compare your running to anyone else’s!
Time / distance is irrelevant as your body becomes accustomed to running.
Your biggest competitor will always be yourself!
