Spring is well and truly here and I’ve been enjoying the lighter mornings and listening to the birds singing whilst I take personal training sessions in the parks or at Blenheim Palace. You can even sense the change of seasons from the smell of the soil as it warms up. No, it’s not a nasty doggy foul smell … more like warm hummus.
You’ve probably noticed an increase in the number of people out running at this time of the year. It’s not anything to do with the above, but because of another spring event – the London Marathon. There are plenty of runners out getting in their final miles and doing their rehearsals. Which leads us on nicely to…
On Saturday 15th March I was invited to talk to a group of “virgin” (not the company) marathon runners and I was chuffed to pass on my top 10 tips to help prep them ready for the big race on April 13th. We discussed everything from kit to bleeding nipples (ewww …. but a common Marathon problem for men). After the talk we had a 60 minute Q&A too and there were some great questions asked. Everyone left with an information pack I’ve put together over the years to take them to and through the event.
I’m planning to post those tips every day from April 1st (not a joke) to 13th, so if you are running the London Marathon, or any other marathon for that matter, sign up to our newsletter and you’ll get the tips too.
