“It just goes to show with the right advice and a sensible approach, all things are possible!”

<   Back


I came to Physio 4 life quite worried. I had been training for the London marathon since November and all had been going to plan, then I got a really sore knee which would hurt every time I ran. The initial session with Russell put me at ease that I should be able to run the race, as long as I took the measures he suggested. I discovered that I hadn’t been working enough on my core stability and strength in my glutes, abs and quads so this was something we addressed together. I also had my ITB band taped which made such a difference. When race day came round I felt a mixture of fear but also relief that I had at least followed the advice of a professional and was hopefully in as best a shape as possible under the circumstances. One of the challenges Russell had set me was to do 3 hours straight on a cross trainer in preparation to try to replicate as much as I could the experience of race day, given that I couldn’t do any of my long runs. Though boring at the time, this really paid off. I was in pain throughout the marathon but cardio-vascually felt fine. It just goes to show with the right advice and a sensible approach, all things are possible!
