Tips and tricks for new runners!

It's the running season, and the 10k running series has already started in Malta. Get inspired to join one of the races in preparation for the Malta marathon. This could be a new challenge in your life that will push you to a new level of strength, determination and health!

1. Find your motivation and dump the excuses.

We can all find excuses as to why we don’t exercise… we’re too tired, we don’t have time, the cooker needs cleaning. Ok maybe not the last, but to get started, you need to dump the excuses, find your motivation and focus on that.

2. Get a jogging buddy

Whether you join a friendly local club or you just grab a mate or two, having a jogging buddy will keep you on the straight and narrow track, and will help to stop those excuses.

3. Keep a record

Keep a diary of the length of your runs. Whether it’s on a free fitness app or old school, with a paper diary, either will work. As you see your results improve, so will your motivation!

4. Stretch

Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints. Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight.


5. Stay hydrated

It’s so important to make sure you are correctly hydrating your body. The colour of water when you go to the loo is the best indicator - it should be transparent!

6. Eat Real Food

Eating nutrient-dense wholefoods like the African Superfoods Baobab, Super Cacao and Moringa are a great natural way to get all your vitamins, minerals and macro-nutrients your body needs, without having to take any pills!

Make sure you also have a good wholesome breakfast on the days you are training and top up your energy with real food snacks and energy bars.
