SV provides advice to St Clare Hospice London Marathon runners

Sophie had the pleasure of helping St Clare Hospice London Marathon runners at the charity's information evening on 25 February.

This meeting - the second of three - was all about getting to know each individual runner in more detail and finding out how their training is currently going: the positives, negatives and what they need to improve on.

Sophie discussed:

  • Jeffing - Yes this is a word! It refers to the running technique founded by Olympian Jeff Galloway that uses intervals of running and walking...

  • gels and carbs during running

  • what to do when you feel pain

  • how to optimise your recovery

  • the dreaded 'shin splints' also known as medial tibial stress syndrome.

The next information evening will be all about race day!
