Injuries are very common in marathon training

Injuries are very common in marathon training

Hopefully you would have started your basic training but don’t get too excited and do too much too soon. You should be thinking of starting your officially training in early December. Hopefully getting through the tough Christmas period and staying on track. Marathon training can be very tough, not just for first timers. A seasoned pro may have developed imbalances or niggling injuries from underlying mechanical problems

Unfortunately the injury rate in marathon training is extremely high. This is usually due to over training or underlying weakness or injury.


Now is the perfect time to come in and see our Sports Rehabilitation Specialist for pre-hab assessment to identify any weakness/imbalances you may have …. and improve them before it’s to late!

The best way to make sure you reach your goal and finish the Marathon is to get to the start line without injuries.

Pre-hab assessment involves :

  • functional movement screening,
  • muscle testing
  • video running analysis.
  • Identifying any minor or major challenges to running long distance,
  • recommendations around exercises and training schedule
  • Options and ways to correct or minimise problems.

Call Maple Leaf on 01932-820 400 to book your Assessment with Emma Manaton.  Allow 30 minutes for the regular screen and 1 hour if you also want to have the running analysis (Please bear in mind that video can only be done during daylight hours).
