Learning to Run

Name: Matthew Mayer

I'm part of: Heart and Stroke Foundation 

#1 Health Goal: Learn to run so I can complete a marathon.

Biggest Challenge: Have never run any distance over 1K continuously.

Biggest Accomplishment: Overcoming knee injuries.

I will continue to Live Right Now by: 
  • Scheduling daily workouts to keep active
  • Track my activity so I can learn what I am doing and how I can progress
  • Moderate my diet  - make sure I am cutting back on undesirable foods to keep my body energized.

Personal Tip for Canadians: Track what you do. You will hold yourself accountable if you have skipped an entire week of activity.
