ARE YOU A NEW RUNNER OVER 40 & 50?

Did you know I am  among the thousands of over 50s who has been there and successfully overcome these to run several marathons and climb the highest peaks in the Himalayas.  You can also do it, because our training is not the standard c25k beginner program. It has been tailored for beginners like you who are starting late in life but it is never too late.

MRP TRAINING METHODOLGY

Heart Based Training

Heart rate training uses your heart rate, or beats per minute (bpm), to monitor your effort while running. This can be a very effective training method to help runners stick to certain intensities and effort levels without overdoing it, which in turn, can help us reach our training goals more efficiently. This is crucial for over 40s and 50s runners.
How do you measure heart rate?
If your watch already has a monitor built in, the reading will be taken from your wrist. If it doesn’t have one, you can purchase a separate heart rate monitor that will measure and transmit the information directly to your watch so you can monitor your beats per minute while training.
Benefits of heart rate-based training for over 40s?
Using a heart rate method can help prevent overtraining and lower the risk of injury as we are more likely to stay in our desired zones. Running at the correct intensity also helps us keep on track and work towards our training goals more efficiently.

Strength Training

Strength training is important for any age group, but it’s especially important for people over 40 and 50 and even more important for over 40 & 50 runners!

That’s because as we get older, our muscles lose some of their ability to contract. If we don’t start building strength as we age, it can lead to serious health issues, But as Runner it has added benefits it helps prevent injuries ,lose weight, improve performance!

It doesn’t matter how old you are or what your fitness level is. You can strength train no matter your fitness level or physical limitations.
There are many different types of strength training that you can do. Some examples are weight lifting, yoga, Pilates, or bodyweight muscle building exercises. In our programme, we start with bodyweight exercise to build core and strengthen your lower body. We alternate between core & lower body strength 15 minutes per session two or three times a week

Run/Walk Strategies

In addition for longer runs and for new beginners where we incorporate walk breaks in between runs it helps to cover more distance reduce your feelings of intimidation about running and increases motivation, and help stick with running.

80/20 Principle

80/20 method of training increases fitness more effectively than other methods

Runners get more benefit from high-intensity training when they do most of their training at low intensity. Both moderate- and high-intensity training are too stressful to be done in large amounts.

Hence all our plans weed off moderate intensity exercises and have a minimal high intensity and maximum low intensity.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMER SAY ABOUT US?

At 56 years of age, I was looking to find a way that I could get a little healthier both mentally & physically due to life stressors and poor eating habits. I wanted to try out different exercises, but the thought of enrolling into classes and the commute etc. put me off, and I wanted to try running. I've never been able to run, but I found the C25K program, hard, and it took three failed attempts before I stumbled upon the MRP beginner program for over 40s. I started the free MRP 5-week running apprehensive of my ability to complete it. My aim was to finish the program and be able to run for 30 mins without stopping. But instead, I managed not only to meet the MRP 5-week program but progressed on to running 5k non-stop and ran a race for life in March 2022. I am currently preparing for my 10 K race in November 2022. I will recommend MRP Beginner Programme for over 40s & 50s to anyone in my shoes.

Mark Ramsay Software Engineer

I started off with a standard C25K programme and tried to give it my all. After 7 weeks on the program I had severe shin splint and realised that this program was not working for me. I came across the MRP Beginners Programme for over 40s , which looked more reasonable and included strength training to improve muscle strength and avoid injuries. I started in Jan this year and take my time. I repeated a few weeks just to be sure, and my week 7 I had completed the MRP beginner plan for over 40s. The heart rate based running was easy for the body and recovery was quick and I could also run longer. Now, 7 months on from this success, I have followed the level 1 5k program for beginners and have started doing parkruns. I have become a runner for life thanks to Raji from MRP!

Lisa Avance Health Worker

MRP Beginners Run Plan for Over 40s is a strong foundation for anyone beginning to run over 40s. I am 45 and gained so much confidence after completing the MRP Beginners Over 40 Plan. It is effortless and straightforward. The run/walk and the MHR(maximum heart rate) based strategy made me look forward to the weekly running sessions. I was no longer huffing & puffing but enjoying every bit of the run. The strength training sessions were fun, just 15 minutes a session, and I started feeling stronger in just a few weeks. I continue to run and have 1-to-1 coaching with Raji from MRP to do my first 10k race!

Rama Mohan Charted Account

In 6 months I have gone from running for 30 seconds to running for more than 50 minutes without stopping. I never imagined this was possible for me and I am so proud of myself for sticking with it, I am tremendously grateful to Raji for making and sharing these plans, but I sure couldn't have done it without the amazing runners of the community either!
