HERE ARE A FEW HELPFUL TIPS FOR
PREPARING FOR YOUR WALK/RUN TO
A HEALTHIER LIFE.

 Please check with your Medical doctor
before beginning any exercise.

Get plenty of sleep the final week before
Walk/Run day.

Think about what you are going to eat the
day before the Walk/Run. Pasta is a great
Pre-Walk/Run meal as it is full of
carbohydrates and tends not to sit heavily
in the stomach.

 Drink plenty of water. It’s important that
the body is fully hydrated before the
Walk/Run.

 A good pair of walking/running shoes is
important. Shoes must fit well, giving you
vital support and shock absorption.

 It is vital to do some stretching before and
after every walk/run as it will help your
body deal with the physical stress of
exercise and reduce the chance of injury.

 Always jog to warm-up before you stretcha
warm muscle is more pliable.

 Ease into the stretch – never jerk, bounce
or force a muscle.

 Take a deep breath and exhale as you
stretch, holding it in for ten seconds.
