We have a UK athletic coach to give advice and training. We cater for beginners who never have run before to the faster, club runner.
Running at between 6:00 and 8:30 minutes per mile, pace, many are much slower, although some are a lot quicker.
The runs are varied, from flat road to hills and lots of beach. There is also a track available for speed and interval training.
Running Tours Europe for beginners
Running Tours Europe programmes for beginners, move you from walking - which we all do every day - to running. The only difference is the motivation to become fitter. This fitness will bring a physical feeling of well being, leading to an enthusiasm to get even fitter.
Before you start any training programme, you should ask yourself what short and long term goals you have - remembering that your goals must be achievable. It is better to set easy goals and achieve them than fail to achieve goals that are too ambitious. A goal which is too ambitious may lead to injury.
We begin with a Walk and Run programme, with the runs and walks lasting for 1 minute each. This session should last about 20 to 30 minutes and should be repeated 3 or 4 times every week. This will soon take you to the stage of running 1 mile every other day - but be patient.
A beginner will be running 4 miles every other day and a longer run at weekends, say 6 miles.
To move from just finishing a run to racing, you must add more miles and include some speedwork and hills. The increased distance should be done steadily, with the advice of a coach. If you increase mileage and add speed work in the same week, you risk incurring an injury. Regretfully, too many runners get the advice of a qualified coach only after injury.
Advanced runners usually undertake a variety of runs at varying speeds. The distances covered and speed will be dependent upon your individual goals. A 5k runner will not have the same schedule as a half Marathon runner, or indeed a 800m runner. No matter what you are training for, or what level you are at, every run should be for a specific purpose. Every run should train specific muscles, and the following day those muscles should rest. The secret is to vary what you do.
There are many runners with considerable experience, gathered over many years. Seek their advice about what training they are doing and what their goals they have. Ask if they have had injuries and what they did to overcome them.
