We’re thrilled that you’ve decided to take on a challenge and fundraise for Breast Cancer Care.
We’re here to help you train for the big day with step-by-step training plans and stretching guides. It’s all part of the Team Breast Cancer Care plan to support you every step of the way.
Before you start remember that your body may need time to adjust to your new fitness regime. We’ve put together some tips to help you get started.
- Planning your training – we recommend you start your training plan no less than six months before your challenge.
- Increase your training gradually – stick within the limits of speed and distance that are comfortable for you.
- Rest and recover – remember that rest is as important as time spent training. This will allow your body to repair.
- Get a training buddy – training with a friend is a great way to keep up the motivation.
