When Is The Best Time To Have 3D Gait Analysis?

Jan 31 2018, - by Andrea Ross

Peak marathon season is approaching faster than you can say Mo Farah. Brighton Marathon is only 11 weeks away, London Marathon 12 weeks, with many others even sooner! The first few weeks of training for a marathon is usually very organised, some would even go as far as saying its exciting! Everything goes to plan as you tick off those completed runs.

As we get busier and busier, runs get missed, foam rolling ceases, and dry January has to end at some point. Instead of trying to play catch up with your training and risk developing an injury, the best thing you can do to avoid this is to plan ahead.

Marathons happen regularly throughout the year across the world. But the 'big ones', both internationally and in the UK, spike up at two peak times; spring & autumn. In England, the most prestigious race of the year is the London Marathon, taking place at the end of April.   ..

The dreaded foam roller. The thing that everyone loves to hate. How is it possible that something so painful is supposed to help? MOST runners own a foam roller.
