Are you an exercise fanatic or do you prefer to lie in front of the TV? There’s good news and there’s bad news whoever you are.

We all have some idea how fit we are- for example, someone even a little fitter than me doesn’t have to stop for breath at the top of a hill! The question is how do you get fit? Exercise, of course! But (and this is the good news for people like me!) not all the time.

Too much training is actually bad for your body. Of course, this doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t take exercise, but rest is also important. Muscles are damaged during physical exercise.

After a really hard day, your body needs around 48 hours to recover. While you are resting, your muscles are repaired and strengthened.

A good way to get fit is to take up running. If you want to give it a try, choose a distance that’s long is enough to challenge you but short enough to allow you to finish in comfort. Save the long distances until you’ve had plenty of practice.

A ‘fun run’ with runners every level of training is a good place to start. Keep away from runs with big hills and try to avoid extremely hot or cold weather. Remember – build up gradually and have two or three rest days every week. A few days before the ‘big day’, start taking it easy. There’s more good news for lazy people like me. After hard exercise, your muscles need carbohydrates and protein- so you should eat something like a sandwich fairly quickly. And the more you exercise, the more food you need.

Rest is essential if you want your fitness to improve – and so is sensible eating and drinking. And that can be done in front of the TV! Fitness fanatic or couch potato? It’s best to be a bit of both!
