Training Tips

Key to success - Progressive Training

Expert:  Dr. Simon Yeung, Associate Professor of Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University

Key Points:

  • A well-planned, progressive training program. 
  • Increase your running distance progressively by not more than 10% each week. e.g. run 5km this week, 5.5km next week.
  • Train at least 2-3 times a week, with a long steady run in the weekend to build up your mileage and one to two shorter sessions during the week for pace running.
