Operation Move

124. Running local? Here’s how to adapt your training.

April 16, 2020


If you are in lockdown, this episode is for you!


It is probably different depending on what state you are in, but in NSW while we are still allowed to get outside for exercise (yay!) we do have to stay within our own suburb or postcode. So while it's fine to drive to somewhere in your suburb to start your run if there's a park or trail you like, that's not okay if it's outside of your suburb.

I usually split my runs between home and the flatter runs down the hill one or two suburbs away. But for the last few weeks, I've been sticking to just being at home. Which does have a few training challenges. So this week, I'm talking all about the changes you can make to your sessions when you are limited as to terrain - whether you are living somewhere that is all hills (me!), or can't get access to hills or are missing out on your usual trail running.

Would you like your question answered?


As promised on the podcast, you can book in a skype call here Or you can email me here.
