|As the year draws to a close it is a great time to reflect on the year that was. Get out your training diaries and have a look at what you have accomplished this year. Whether that was participating in your first fun run or having completed more kilometres than the previous year. Taking a look at the last 12 months is a great motivator for the year ahead.
Start planning and get your goals organised for 2017. If you are looking to run a half or full marathon – we highly recommend attending the FREE information morning for the Marathon School 2017.

Did you know running facts – Part 31
Rainer Predl of Austria however, took running on a treadmill to another level. Over a 7 day period, Rainer completed 853.46 km, where he set a new world record for treadmill running.
There’s more: the extreme athlete holds the world record for 100 km on a treadmill. Whilst there is no better substitute to running outdoors, a treadmill running session every now and then can increase cadence and reducing impact whilst running.
Stay healthy, keep active and have a happy run!

Gardening, chores, yard work and keeping injury free
The end of year holidays is a great time to unwind and relax, and recover from a busy year of work and running. It’s also a time when people decide to get stuck into chores they’ve been putting off.
