Coach Ravinder has been successfully leading Couch to 5k/10k programs since 2013 in Gurgaon, Delhi and NCR and is a firm believer of injury-free running.
A thorough health check-up is recommended before anyone takes up the Couch to 5K program.
Never ignore aches & pains or muscular inflammation, Muscular soreness normally subsides in 48-72hrs.
Proper hydration is important for faster recovery. It’s important to remain hydrated through the day (pre-workout & post-workout).
Easy flexibility & strengthening exercises are also recommended along with attached program.
3 Basic Running Tips:
Never look down while running, fix your gaze 30-50m ahead. look down once in a while to check if your track ahead is clear.
- Sip water only to keep your throat moist (wet) for easy oxygen intake.
- While running your arms should move straight and must not be crossing the body’s center line, body relaxed, fist loosely closed, chest out & back straight.
- Shoes- There should be sufficient toes space for expansion of toe while running and you should not be running in discomfort.
Be positive & motivated, it’s easy if you don’t quit. If I can do it, you can do it too!!!
