Marathon - How to Prevent Injury

What better place to get advice about completing a marathon than from someone who has been there and done that.

We have asked some of our friends/clients who have made it through a marathon to share their top tips.

“When training for the London Marathon 2013, I found that my best friend throughout training was my foam roller which I used daily to stretch out my muscles!

Although painful, and at the end of a long day it seemed like the last thing that I wanted to endure, it allowed my muscles and body to recover and remain injury free during my training.

One lesson I did learn through experience was the importance of including a recovery run after the long runs. Recovery runs are usually about 5km runs and should take place the day after a long run. Although short, they help to reduce the aches and pains and allow you to be more productive in your training”
