How to avoid hittign the wall

We’ve all ‘hit the wall’, or ‘bonked’ as it’s known to cyclists. It’s the worst feeling ever and the best way to put a damper on a good run, workout, ride or whatever it is you’re doing.

But let’s start from the top.

5 Reasons why you need to try walking this Summer

Yeah I get, you already know how to walk. Left foot, right foot etc. Getting out into the countryside isn’t quite the same however!

Walking, trekking and hiking. They’re all different grades of much the same thing: Getting outside on your own two feet. 

There’s some debate between the exact differences between the three. Broadly speaking hiking is at the more hardcore end of the scale with multi-day adventures across physically taxing terrain not being unusual.

6 Post-Run Recovery Tips – Get the most out of your Training

How do you become faster? Just keep on running, right?

Wrong.

It might be counter-intuitive, but the recovery phase of exercise is almost equal to the actual exercise itself. If you’re the kind of person who just can’t resist going for another 10k or hitting the gym one last time this week you might be disappointed to know that taking a day or two off might be the best way to get faster, stronger and fitter.
