I titled this page ‘Running for Beginners’ because the training program I outline in my book ‘How to Break Your Fitness Slump and Comfortably Finish a Fun Run’ is designed for people who haven’t done a lot of running training before or for a long time and it is perfect for someone who is training for their first fun run.

c2s-trainingThis on a running training program that I developed for myself that is based on the 80/20 rule, or in this case 20/80! That is that 20% of your training effort gives you 80% of the fitness. It is idea for people who are basically fit or may even be weekend runners, but who want a program to prepare for the City2Surf that isn’t too strenuous.

This program is perfect for anyone of average fitness who wants to train for a 10-14km fun run like the City2Surf or for people who are basically active but want to put in a solid fun run preparation so that they can comfortably finish a fun run.
