Why should you start run­ning? Well, along­side be­ing an awe­some car­dio­vas­cu­lar work­out that helps you strengthen and tone your legs, it’s a sport where you get re­peated op­por­tu­ni­ties to raise your game. Con­sider chal­leng­ing your­self by sign­ing up to the Sim­ply­health Great South Run on 21 Oc­to­ber (or one of the 30 run­ning events in the se­ries, hosted in 13 cities across the UK). Up for it? Great. Now it’s time to strate­gise. You’ll find a wide range of easy-to-fol­low train­ing plans at sim­ply­­part­ner­ship, as well as the ex­pert advice and en­cour­age­ment you need to get race-ready. A Sim­ply­health Ac­tive plan cov­ers the cost of a range of ser­vices that can help pre­vent in­jury and keep you run­ning well; from sports mas­sage and gait anal­y­sis to den­tistry, acupunc­ture and over­all health checks. The fi­nal step? Share your progress with a na­tion­wide run­ning com­mu­nity us­ing #Myev­erys­tep. Ready, set, now smash it.
