Week 1 tips

Training exercises

Practice these skills over about 20 metres, repeating them 5 times, 3 times a week.

1. Bucket and balloon: This is all about learning a better posture and smoother running form.

2. Learn to skip again: This simple exercise is well worth mastering as it strengthens your muscles that you use while running without your joints bearing too much load. It also helps to build calf, ankle and foot strength.

3. Heel pickups: Use your bucket and balloon skills to put a bit of pace into your legs in a short space.
