Training for a spring event? Whether it’s a 10k, half-marathon or full marathon, our March workshops will help.
This workshop will focus on two key themes that always generate a lot of discussion with runners.
Tess Capper – Nutrition
How to get the basics right in training and on race weekend.
Nutrition plays such an important part for anyone following a regular exercise routine, both recreationally or professionally.
In this presentation Tess Capper will deliver some insight into best nutrition practice during training and in the lead up to your race day. It will go back to basics about what the body requires at each stage and how to fuel and recover appropriately
Tess is a nutritionist registered with the Association for Nutrition, and the Sport and Exercise Nutrition register. She is currently studying for a PhD in functional foods and has worked with a variety of athletes and sports, including running, swimming, dancing and weight lifting. She is also a keen runner herself.
Adrian Stott – Overtraining
What it is. How to recognise the warning signs. What you can do about it.
All runners, whether training for a 10k or the Marathon, whatever their standard, go through periods when they feel jaded and nothing seems quite in gear. This very user friendly presentation gives simple advice on how to recognise the warning signs of overtraining and what to do about them.
Adrian is Run and Become’s own experienced marathon and ultra marathon runner and currently team manager with Scottish and GB ultra distance teams. He has a wealth of experience of helping to manage athletes training for their own challenges big and small!
The evening will finish with an open general question and answer session where you can tap into expert advice on nutrition and training in general.
