We’re getting ready for another exciting summer, filled with the opportunity to RUN, SUP and STRETCH it out on the beach with Roxy’s 2016 #ROXYfitness event series.
To get you started Roxy have created an easy running program that will guide you to 5km in 4 weeks. Plus here’s a few running tips from the Roxy team to get the most out of your training –
• When placing your foot on the ground imagine you’re running on a tight-rope – this way you will note to place your feet onto the ground gently and put less strain on your ankle and knee joints.
• Relax! Make sure your fingers are loose and you’re not running with a clenched fist, this helps to relax your neck and shoulder muscles.
• Make sure your arms don’t twist past your belly button. This will keep your hips, legs and stride straight.
• Look straight ahead and breathe lightly. If you’re running out of breath, simply slow your pace. The closer your lips are together the easier it will be to keep a nice light breath.
