Inside this issue: May 2016

You may train hard, but training smart is essential to help smash your goals. Our May issue has all the info you need to take your performance to the next level...

Run your first or fastest 5K

Looking to take on your first ever race or aiming for a new PB? There's no better distance than the 5K. Get prepped to toe the start line with confidence with our success strategies and training plan.

Are you training too hard?

If you're struggling to progress despite putting in the training hours, it's not that you're not working hard enough - in fact, you could be doing too much. We investigate overtraining syndrome and how you can avoid it.

Post-race recovery

You've crossed the finish line, collected your medal and celebrated with a beer (or three). Don't let your recovery finish there, though - follow our three-week plan to recuperate thoroughly and recharge ready to race at full strength again.

Tailor your taper

If marathon day is creeping closer, it's time to scale back your training. We look at how to ease off in order to make sure you're ready to race.
