So it comes down to your ability to run? We couldn't agree more.
That's why RUNNING is and always has been a fundamental part of the V1 FITNESS self defence training in Cyprus. Do your own research, no martial arts or so called self defence system in Cyprus offers anything like our V1 FITNESS professional running coaching, weekly running events and organised endurance running events.
NOTE: For us at V1 FITNESS, Run - Hide - Tell should be Run - Escape - Fight, common sense and historical statistics on similar attacks clearly demonstrate a need for being more proactive in your escape. The UK message of 'stay put' and wait for uniformed personal to rescue you is for masses who prefer to live their lives as sheep. Many of the people who tragically lost their lives in the Grenfell tower fire were also told to 'stay put' and wait for rescue. DO NOT WAIT - KEEP MOVING AWAY FROM THE DANGER AND IF NECESSARY FIGHT YOUR WAY TO SAFETY.
Do you prefer to be a sheep or a warrior? Book a self defence lesson.
Can't run 1, 3 or 5 km flat out should your life depend on it? You really need to get real about fitness and self defence. Book a beginners running lesson today at V1 FITNESS.

Any form of offence (self-defence) will require you to attack back on a higher level than being done to you. The one thing you can be sure of, it will be fast moving and exhausting, especially in close quarters hand-to-hand situations. Your ability to press the attack back to your assailant under an adrenal state will require you to go from zero to nuclear and be able to maintain that until your attacker is neutralised.
YOUR CARDIO AND COMBAT CONDITIONING MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO GETTING YOU HOME SAFELY.
Combat conditioning and proper cardio training is sadly rarely given enough attention in many of the martial art schools that claim to be teaching self-defence. At V1 FITNESS, cardio and combat conditioning is equally as important as striking, kicking and weapons training for self-defence. Because without it, your ability to sustain an offence against one or more assailants over several minutes or more will be reduced greatly. There is no point spending years learning how to strike, kick and grapple if your cardio conditioning is not there during a real self-defence situation.
V1 FITNESS combat cardio includes the following;

Marathon 42km race weekend nutrition -
This is what we do.
Your last run would be the Sunday 7 days before race day. No more than 30km. Just a short 3-4km run on Tuesday evening to test clothing and shoes.
Friday and Saturday, weekend of race.
Increase carbohydrate intake to 10g per kg of body weight, example - 70kg runner would need to consume 700g of carbs on Friday and on Saturday before the Sunday race, this is on top of your normal meals (hence carb loading).
Note; for most runners this is impossible to achieve through food. The best way to hit these carb storage numbers is with High5 Energy Source drink and High5 Energy bars. Every 2-3 hours, drink 500ml of water with one packet of Energy Source, or one energy bar. Plus of course your regular meals with carbs. NO FRUIT.
Race morning breakfast.
