With London Marathon just around the corner, we are focusing our attention on how to make the most of the experience and prevent any potential injuries. Most marathon training plans range from 12 to 20 weeks. Beginning marathoners should aim to build their weekly mileage up to 50 miles over the four months leading up to race day. Three-to-five runs per week is sufficient. By now, we would have hoped you managed to get a few massage treatments to prepare your body and mind to one of the most demanding physical activities out there. If not, make sure you scheudle your pre marathon massage in Fulham, ideally 2-5 days before the big day.
Stretching can also lead to less injuries but the question is what type of stretching is best before and after the marathon?
