Can you manage a mile?

Can you manage a mile?

In last week’s blog post co-founder Jamie told us how signs himself up to different sporting events as a way of keeping motivated to work out. Great idea, right?

So…with the Sport Relief Mile taking place in a month’s time, what better way to take a leaf out of Jamie’s book and get inspired to keep fit?

Run, swim or cycle – it’s your choice. With a range of distances to choose from, there is an event to suit you, whether seasoned pro or shy beginner. Run one mile or six. Cycle three miles... or a whopping 50. If you’re really keen.

The best thing about ‘The Mile’ though, is that it’s taking place all over the country. The flagship Mile is taking place at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park but there are hundreds taking place throughout the UK.

Yes, there is one near you. Promise.

It’s also suitable for all the family so you can get the kids involved and have a fun day out.

OK, you’ve decided to sign up?

Great. Now get training!

The Sport Relief Mile website has its own training programs and there are plenty of other websites that will give you a training schedule to take you right up to race day.

In the meantime, here are some tips for starting a training program:

  • Set your own pace: don’t push yourself too hard and know your limits. If you’re just starting out, go slow
  • Keep boredom at bay: switch up your exercises and choose different activities
  • Focus on your goals: think about what’s motivating you. Make sure your program will build your fitness to the right level in time for the event
  • Keep a log: seeing your progress will encourage you to stick at it

Get involved, get signed up and hit the gym today!
