Get Running: Stay on Track is an eight-week course for anyone who can squeeze a 30- to 40-minute run into their busy life three times a week, but who needs a kickstart to get going, and support when they run out of excuses. Welcome to Get Running Stay On Track delivered by The Irish Times in association with ForgetTheGym.
Stay On Track Week Five
Congratulations on reaching the halfway point of the programme. This week we change the focus to talk about psychology for runners and experiment with some strength work. Mary Jennings
Stay On Track Week Six
This week we’ll show you techniques and for running up hills, and give you some extra tips on how your arms can help you run. We’ll also mix things around with our Fartlek run again.
Stay On Track Week Seven
This week we show you how to become a better runner by assessing how you treat your body between runs. We look at how you can adjust your non-running lifestyle to help your running. And we’ll change around our midweek runs with a new angle on speed work.
Stay On Track Week Eight
This week we mark the end of our eight-week programme by reflecting on how much we have learned and how much we have improved. We also take the opportunity to measure our progress with a final 5k event. And to celebrate the achievement.
