Doctors who you should go to when training for a mararthon.


Those who have either played sport or whose partner once did, preferably at a very high level. They will look at the injury or strain you have and respond by saying such things as…

…oh, it’s just a sprain, take a few days and you’ll be grand.
…you’re doing a marathon?! That’s fantastic!
…what time are you chasing?
…oh, it’s just a sprain, take a few days and you’ll be grand.
…my husband was an Olympic sprinter, don’t worry.
…a marathon? Brilliant. My wife is doing her fifth Dublin marathon.
…I remember my first marathon. It was 34 years ago. We didn’t have special runners back then. It snowed from half way. I trained for two months as I was just back from the Africa. Oh your injury, it’s just a sprain, take a few days and you’ll be grand. So where was I? Yes, Africa.



Yesterday’s training

Same, same - glutes and calf exercises:(.
