Water running helps running form and is "weight-bearing free".

Keeping yourself healthy and in good shape is important for sustained running success which in turn helps you stay fit and healthy.

    When injured, sore, ill or fatigued I modify my training.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Developing self-awareness is a vital skill for runners. In the early stages, some runners stop running due to soreness and pain. Often this is due to the normal training effect or can be as a result of wrong shoes or doing too much too quickly. At the other end of the scale experienced runners often overlook serious or soon to be serious injuries as normal training soreness. Sustainable running is a key aspect of Partnerunning and learning to modify your training when sore, ill or injured is vital too ongoing running success. As you learn your running craft it is better to take rest days and see advice than blindly follow your run plan and end up being unable to run for a long period (or ever) due to injury. It is easy to be attracted to stories of "streakers" who run every day or those who "run 20 miles" they day after the marathon. These are high-risk activities and are not wise for most runners. Take breaks and enabling your body to recover will enable you to keep running for many years to come.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    I follow a healthy eating plan which keeps my weight at a desirable level.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The more weight you carry the harder it is and the more impact running has on your body. It makes keeping cool in hot conditions tougher as well. Just following a run program alone may not reduce your weight, - for many of us, it does not. As you go up in distance and start to eat more you may even gain weight! Including a healthy eating plan as part of your lifestyle will help with achieving desired weight which will, in turn, help your running. For many of us, the key to going further and faster is dropping a few pounds or kilos. The results are much better than hours spent running extra miles and doing speed work at the track. We strongly advise consulting your doctor and a dietician to find what works for you in terms of weight and diet. Finally, we find the foods that work for some do not work for others. Bread and pasta are often seen as staples for runners but for some of us, they have a negative impact. Test what works for you.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    I have a friend, coach, mentor or adviser to discuss my training with.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    No matter how experienced you are a second opinion will help you learn and improve. A second opinion may help avoid mistakes and injuries. Discussing successes and problems with others also helps confirm when you are on the right path and provides increased confidence.
