get fit and mean it logo-newHow is your training going? Christmas is coming now and you want to make sure your weight is spot on before entering the festive season.

It is not about depriving yourself but about living a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Sport, racing and training brings you this balance and motivation to keep healthy and feel good and not the other way around…It might be the other way around when you start training but after a while, it becomes a lifestyle, something you cannot live without, it becomes who you are. I hope you are starting to feel that way. If you do great, you will never stop working out, if not, then keep at it and it will eventually come and surprise you with how much you actually need to move, get outdoors, exercise, push your body and feel healthy.

Racing is not everything but it can be a great indication of progress and fitness but mostly a great motivator to train in all conditions. Racing can be avoided if it is too costly or if you cannot fit it in. Find a good group of similar strength and do some mini races, time trials and track sessions. You will love it but don’t forget to think about recovery. A good way to recover from training is to use Cabot Health’s Glutamine Pure powder. If you are not sure what you are doing and need some help, maybe it is time to talk to a professional coach.

Work outs. Always do at least 10min warm up. Walk if you like. Train every second days but you can do Pilates, yoga and stretching or other sports easy on days off. I recommend to do easy swimming or riding on days you are not running…
