Corporate supporters and ‘survivors’, Natta Building Co Ltd, share their advice to those taking on the Survival of the Fittest course in Manchester this October after completing the London course earlier this year.
- Run the distance of the race beforehand so you get an idea of how long it will take as a minimum.
- You don’t need to join a gym – all the training you need to do can be done at home and on the road. It’s definitely worth focussing on upper body strength. It is all about going up-up-up! And on the road, well, it is as simple as one foot in front of the other. Run-run-run! For some it might be that simple but if not we encourage you to find a partner to run with who can help keep you motivated.
- On the day of the race it’s all about having fun. You’ll soon forget it is a race if you fully embrace the atmosphere and remember why you are doing this. Also, if you’re not running with a partner, friend or colleagues, you can always make a friend on the day, someone at similar running pace as you. Share training stories or reasons for doing the race, help each other over the obstacles or just have a chat along the way. Who knows you might just make a friend for life…
- After the race make sure you take a moment to congratulate yourself, reflect on how well you did, say thank you to the volunteers/organisers/team mates, appreciate that you were able to do this whilst there are others not so lucky and sign up for the next race!
