Brisbane is home to some delicious, healthy cafes and restaurants, so whether it’s finding a post-run coffee shop or a healthy place to go for dinner, the app can help you find something to suit your needs.
Make a plan

Do not forget to add in some all important recovery days too, to help your muscles repair and allow time for essential rest. On these days a leisurely walk or spending time with friends outdoors is a great way to give your body some well-earned rest. Use the Brisbane app to help find a fun picnic location or walking track.
