New To Running the Christchurch City to Surf? Here is a tip:

If you are new to running one of the biggest mistakes you can make is biting off more than you can chew. If you would like to get your body use to running longer distances then there are some great phone apps out there that can help you build up your stamina and endurance like the couch to 5k or couch to 10k phone apps.  They work by getting you to run for a minute or two then walk for a minute or two then repeat so you can start to build up endurance and you will be running like a pro in no time.

Sore legs after running?

Running can put pressure on our legs and often the muscles around our knees, calves or gluteus can begin to feel tight. Massage is a great way to help with lactic acid build up and tightness. Be kind to our body and give it a massage, be it on a foam roller, stretching out with yoga or from one of our sports masseuses.
