Big thank you Community Champion Theresa and the team at Tesco Extra in Quedgeley for kindly helping the first 250 people who register recover after the fun run by providing bananas and apples.

Very kind and will make such a difference. As they say ‘Every little helps’!

Post run recovery – so important!


Especially if you are new to running  a hard workout is good for the body and soul, but not without a solid recovery plan.

Pushing yourself too hard without taking good care of your body can result in days or even weeks of soreness.

Whether you’re working out to get in better shape, to feel faster or both, limiting your activity due to sore muscles can set you back.
