City-Bay Fun Run Editorials
|Benefits of Exercise|
We all have different exercise regimes, schedules and programs, but in the end, as long as what you are doing is safe, sustainable and working for you, then keep it up! The question I want you to ask yourself though is “why do I exercise”? Is it for stress management, weight management, cardiovascular benefit, the way it makes you feel or social interaction? Understanding why you exercise and what you enjoy about it, will ensure that you value this part of your day and keep doing it!
|Recipe: Chicken and Snow Pea Pad Thai|
There’s only six weeks to go before the City-Bay Fun Run. Only six weeks!!! As your training ramps up you need to be thinking more about the food you are eating. Are you eating enough, too much, at the right time? Our chicken Pad Thai is the perfect pre-run meal. Enjoy this super easy and tasty meal the night before or a few hours before your run and you will feel energised and satisfied. You’ll love it so much that you will run all the way to the shops to buy more ingredients to cook it again. Enjoy!

Did you know that ensuring your post exercise meals are balanced and comprised of carbohydrate and protein can help minimise muscle soreness and also help you capitalise on the hard work you put in on the training track?
