Herbalife Nutrition will stage the second edition of its Virtual Run
from October 1 to 31, 2021. Now on its second year, the challenge is part of
the premier global nutrition company’s Get Moving With Good Nutrition campaign
that seeks to give people the push toward healthy active living.
Sridhar Rajagopalan, Senior
Director, Sub-Regional General Manager of Herbalife Nutrition Philippines,
said that the Virtual Run is aimed at breaking the health inertia and fostering
communities that support one another on their healthy living journey.
“We want to encourage every Filipino to start
moving and take the challenge to walk or run a certain distance. Through this
initiative, we would like to inspire communities to support one another on a
healthy living journey and strengthen their relationships through teamwork,” he
Rajagopalan added that this running challenge
seeks to continue Herbalife Nutrition’s campaign of promoting a healthy, active
lifestyle especially during this time.
Apart from the Philippines, the Herbalife
Nutrition Virtual Run 2021 will also take place in Australia, Hong Kong,
Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Last year’s Virtual Run gathered 14,000
participants covering a total distance of close to 600,000 kilometers across
Asia Pacific. This year, Herbalife Nutrition aims to achieve bigger and bolder
goals in the 11
participating markets. The registration period for this year’s Virtual Run is
until October 15, 2021. For more information about how to join and the

During the online media launch of the Herbalife
Nutrition Virtual Run 2021, Rajagopalan shared the following tips on how to
prepare for a running routine:
Have the Right Running Gear
One of the key preparations in running is having the right running gear.
Invest in essential items to make your running journey comfortable. Some of the
items that you need to have are a pair of running shoes, distance running
socks, and comfortable clothing.
Run It Out
Practice running your actual distance. Don’t forget to schedule one to
two rest days a week to allow your muscles to adapt to the increase workloads
and efficiently repair themselves.
If you’re new to running or not ready to run yet, start with walking. Once
walking for a set time becomes easy for you, start alternating between jogging
and walking until you find a comfortable and sustainable pace.
If you’re already an avid runner, start your training by time and not by
distance. Run 20 to 30 minutes first and once you can maintain the pace,
increase your time. Add cross training to keep your routine fresh, and aim for
incremental improvements over time.
Use Nutrition as Your Fuel
To boost your performance, good nutrition is needed by your body. Make
sure that you have a balanced diet consisting of the right amounts of
carbohydrates to fuel your body; protein to repair and rebuild muscles and
tissues; and fat, which is an essential energy source. Proper hydration is also
important as you need to replenish the fluids lost during a strenuous activity.
