The marathon runner

Staying motivated: the marathon runner

Marathon runner Ben Moreau has represented Great Britain and England at the European Championships and Commonwealth Games and now lives and works in Sydney. His training involves running every day, clocking up 100 miles each week.

Speaking about his first steps on the road to a running career, he says, “I got into running after being cajoled into doing cross-country at school. I was by no means the best but I was better at it than I was at football, which I was training a lot harder for.”

Ben’s exercise tips:

1. Get your friends involved
“Exercise is more enjoyable if you do it with other people. The camaraderie gives you a closer connection to the activity and the occasional flash of competitiveness drives you on to improve.”

2. Get a routine
“A weekly plan helps structure exercise around family life. By mapping out my routine I can prepare for training days and look forward to rest days. Whether you’re a morning or an evening person, having a routine will help you stay disciplined.”

3. Listen to podcasts
“When I’m running, music can fade into the background whereas podcasts force me to actively listen, making time pass more quickly.”
