TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOGGING

STRESSED ABOUT HOW YOU’RE GOING TO FIT IN YOUR TRAINING AS THE BUSY FESTIVE SEASON DRAWS NEAR? USE OUR CHRISTMAS SURVIVAL GUIDE AND TRAINING PLAN TO ENSURE YOU GET YOUR RUNS TICKED OFF, IN TIME FOR A VINO…

December training survival guide

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year”. But there are few times in the calendar when the delicate balance of managing your social life and your training plan come into conflict as much as they do in those final few weeks of December. Whether you celebrate it or not, the Christmas and New Year period can disrupt your training. From gym closures and cancelled club training sessions to more invitations to the pub, Christmas comes at the worst time of the year for runners. Just as many of us are gearing up to start training towards a spring half or full marathon, there arrives a flurry of invitations to parties and the pressing need to head to the shops for a different type of endurance event: Christmas shopping. It’s tempting to let your training slip during December, telling yourself that you’ll get back into the groove once January comes around. But now is the time to be building your base fitness and to get a jumpstart on your spring training. Those January miles will feel a lot easier if you put in a bit of work now. Here’s your December training survival guide, so you can have your Christmas cake and eat it too.

About Women’s Running

With the festive season approaching, life is about to get busy. That’s why, this issue, we’re helping you ensure you keep up your running over the festive period with our Christmas Survival Guide, including a four-week training plan, achievable no matter how busy your schedule. Wellness is at the centre of the issue: you’ll find information from our resident GP on how to ensure you’re getting enough iron in your diet as a female runner – and spot the warning signs of a deficiency – as well as essential advice on running through pregnancy from coach Laura Fountain, as she looks at why it’s so essential for pregnant runners to listen to their bodies and focus on their own individual journeys. If you’re finding it difficult at the moment to concentrate on – and look after – yourself a little bit more, then don’t miss cover star Karen Lewing’s story; find out how she transformed her life – and her wellbeing – when she did just that. And if that’s enough to encourage you to make more time for you – and your running – next year, don’t miss contributing editor Tina Chantrey’s feature on the benefits of paid-for coaching…2018 might just be the year you take your running to the next level.
