South Waikato News - - SPORT - By HEATHER GABY

Hash House Har­ri­ers in Toko­roa meet tonight at 6pm in the Trees Tav­ern carpark on the cor­ner of Bal­moral Drive and State High­way 1 for a run and walk. The group is out for about an hour meet­ing back at the Trees for some quick re­fresh­ments and so­cial­is­ing. Next Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 1, the group meets at Ra’s Sports Bar on Rose­bery St at 6pm. Ev­ery­one is wel­come to join the group for fun ac­tive leisure. Stick­ing to Goals Whether you dream of com­pet­ing at the next Olympic Games or merely aim to get off the couch most days for a walk around the block, set­ting a goal and stick­ing to your plan to achieve it is vi­tal if any progress is to be gained.

You may have re­solved to be more ac­tive this year but un­for­tu­nately most well-in­tended New Year’s res­o­lu­tions will have al­ready been filed in the too-hard bas­ket. If you’re one of the few who are work­ing hard to stick to your res­o­lu­tion of be­ing more ac­tive in 2012 take a pat on the back. Train­ing Starts While the sun is out and your mind is tuned to bar­be­cues and the beach, it’s hard to be­lieve that win­ter sport is about to be­gin. But win­ter sport musters are com­ing up and this means it’s time to bring your body back from hol­i­day along with your mind and be­gin some pre-sea­son phys­i­cal con­di­tion­ing. This will pre­pare your body for the rigours of your sport and is vi­tal to min­imise the risk of in­jury. Phys­i­cal fit­ness should be gained in the off and pre-sea­son and main­tained dur­ing the sea­son. Su­per Sports Just a few weeks un­til this year’s South Waikato Su­per Sports on Fe­bru­ary 24, 25 and 26.

Train­ing should be start­ing to peak for those ded­i­cated sports­peo­ple and for those who are think­ing of mak­ing a last minute en­try, some se­ri­ous cram­ming might be re­quired.
