I’m starting to get excited now; excited because I’ve managed to run 6km non-stop for the first time in my life! This might not be a big deal to many, but it is to me. I never thought that I would be able to if I’m being honest.

The health benefits of being active far outweigh any risk. For everyone or anyone just starting out on a fitness plan, physical activity does increase the risk of injury whether it is physically or environmentally related.
