Training for – and taking part in – the Vitality London 10,000 are not just brilliant ways to help you look and feel great. They can also help you take great steps towards leading a healthier and more active lifestyle.
A 10km race is a great distance for novices and seasoned runners alike. To help you to reach your target, whether you simply want to get round or you’re aiming to set a new personal best, we recommend that you follow a training schedule, which will allow you to increase your fitness levels at a sensible and effective rate.
The sooner you can get into the habit of regular exercise, the sooner you will start to enjoy the benefits. If you have not done any exercise for a while, however, consult your doctor before you start training.
