SV attends London Marathon information evening at Saint Francis Hospice

Preparations for London Marathon 2019 are already underway at Team Saint Francis Hospice #TeamSFH!

On Wednesday 7 November, Nicole, Sophie and Fleur attended the first of three London Marathon evenings at the hospice - meeting their amazing 2019 runners and discussing everything running-related, including:

  • getting organised and finding the right training programme tailored for you

  • gait assessments, trainers and running socks

  • the importance of recovery, self help, stretching, foam rolling

  • the benefits of maintenance sports massage during the 16-week training programme

  • what running injuries to look out for, what they feel like and what you should do if they happen

  • getting together and running as a group for some training runs

Other professionals sharing their knowledge were:

And Frankie the lion, of course!

It was a pleasure to meet these amazing fundraisers who are taking on their epic challenge and raising at least £2,000 each for SFH.
